Anyone know what years were effected for the headlight switch? I know of a TSB for the headlight switch or connector. Mine went out a couple years ago. No dash lights, and once in awhile, no tail lights either. You may not be effected by this, but its a place to start.

95 Seems to be the only problem year for headlight switch.

I think there'* a fuse for dash lights.
From there..I'd pull the radio and check for power from the lightswitch to the dimmer there.
