Electrical Gremlins and an Electrical n00b

Basically, my taillights and gauge lights will not work when the headlights are on.

There is a sweet spot on the parking lights that, when in a certain position (a little bit further in than where it locks for parking lights), that everything works normally. When I pull it out to the normal parking light position or headlight position the gauge lights and taillights shut off. Other lights (parking lights, brake lights, reverse lights, and blinkers) all work.

This is an area that I know very little about, as I've been luck enough to never have an electrical issue with a vehicle and never learned about it. Hopefully it's a relatively simple fix, as I've been driving without taillights (without my knowledge) for a few weeks.

Any suggestions are appreciated
