Re: Dash lights don'tcome on.

The tail lights and the instrument panel operate from different terminals on the same switch. It is possible that both switches are bad but in different positions. The tail light wire should be black and the Instrument wires should be Orange/Black, the push button lamp (if you have one) should be orange. All of these lamps depend on contact with the dash for their ground, and won't work hanging free. Check to be sure that you have the switch wired correctly and that the bulbs are good. If the switch is the problem I've had success finding parts from both Andy Bernbaum and Atlas Obsolete parts. Good Luck!
