Electrical is kicking my a$$!!!!

Okay, so here's my problem.....I have no dash lights or console lights, no running lights front or rear, no dinging when I leave the lights on and opem the door.
Here's what works...headlights, emergency lights, turn signals, stop lights, reverse lights, and interior lights via the dimmer switch.

No fuses were blown that I could see...replaced almost all of them just to be sure.

Any help is welcome! Not sure where this thread should go but hopefully someone finds it and has some ideas

Sounds like the headlight switch is not working right.

yes id check that multifunction switch. if you have a factory service manual, it will show you how to test each terminal to make sure the switches are functioning properly.

Did you check fuse 1 behind the glove box. That supplies power to the headlamp switch for marker lights and dash illumination.
