No instrument panel lights

I changed a burned out shift indicator bulb in the center console and it still doesn't light. Yesterday I drove the truck for the first time at night and now my dash doesn't light up either. Everything was fine until I replaced the bulb at the gear selector. I checked the 15 amp fuse and it's good, what else could be causing this all of a sudden?

You obviously have tried turning the cluster dimmer switch on the left stalk next to the steering column?

Found the issue and everything is working again including the gear selector light on the console. The owners manual said fuse #34 which is a 15A is for the dash, courtesy and console indicator lamps. When I pulled it was good so just for the heck of it I started to pull out the other fuses and checked them. When I got to #9 cavity and pulled out the 10A fuse it was bad. I found out that 9, 13 and 34 have the instrument cluster and console shift indicator lamp tied into them some way or another.

Great The Owners' manual is notorious for incomplete/incorrect fuse information....you need to check the circuit diagrams for slightly more accurate information.
