Have you checked the wiring under the dash?

Unless you have a short somewhere, there might just be a loose wire. I can try to find diagram for it.

its your headlight switch. Replace it and your good to go. All the headlight switch is a potentiometer which is a adjustable resistor, when they go bad they do not complete the circuit anymore, hence why your lights dont work. Autozone has them for $20 or so.

my wife had the same problem with her 99. she had just had an aftermarket radio put in and then her dash lights went out. i pulled the radio out and if i remember corectly the dimmer wire wasn't hooked up (this was almost 3 years ago) but it was touching the metal frame for the radio. i taped it up and then she had dash lights. The only prob she had after that happened was she couldn't dime the dash. They were either on or off. Hope this helps????
