The fuse may be ok but did you check to see if there is voltage to that fuse when your lights are switched on?

Make sure that is the correct fuse, and turn the headlight rotary dimmer knob full clockwise.

I have the same situation on a 2002 Diplomat. Most comments I get is that the resistor in the Light Switch that controls the voltage to the Gage Bulbs has deteriorated and the light switch needs to be replaced. I got to get a new one as soon as I have/take time to take the Switch out. Good luck with yours.

Need a voltmeter or at least a test light. Check all the fuses with the test light in case you missed the correct one.

As suggested it might just be turned down. The switches are a known failure item.

My dash lights only worked intermittently, as though there was a short. After checking various threads on this website about others who have had similar issues, I decided to simply replace the headlight switch. The dash lights work perfectly now.
Just FYI, if you do decide to replace the headlight switch, check on here for related threads. There’s a button on the switch that needs to be pushed in order to remove the old switch. I saved a great deal of frustration by researching on here how to do the replacement. Secondly, as per the advice I got on “IRV2,” I purchased the new switch through Amazon, rather than through an RV supply store. My switch was used in cars, so it was available on Amazon as well as auto parts stores cheaper than at an RV supply store.

Great advice on how to remove the control. It is not difficult but you need to know the trick.

Thanks all. More to look into. I don't drive much at night, but don't want to be without them. TB
