No Dash lights, parking lights, running lights, tail lights. HELP!!

Got in my truck last night flipped on the lights and no backlights on the dash, no tail lights, no parking lights, no running lights.

I really need to get this fixed ASAP. I've got a 1300 mile drive in 19 days. Anyone that can help would be much appreciated.

I've checked the fuses under the dash they are all good. What to do next?

Also if there is anyone near Virginia Beach, Va that would be willing to help me out please shoot me a PM

Check the dash light dimmer. When they get old , they can become a little twitchy. Couldn't hurt to try

I had the batteries off doing work on my clockspring, and had noticed the day before that I didn't have a back light or my fogs.. so went through and checked my fuses and came across a 5 amp i believe that was blown. replaced it and no more problems.. I wanna say it was in the 40's on the fuse location though.. could be wrong.

So I've checked all the fuses and I can't find any blown fuses... anybody chime in on this??

I don't have an ohms meter, I have tried unplugging the connectors to the switches to make sure nothing crazy is going on there, didn't help...

Any electrical genius' that want to give me a hand for a case or beer or something around Virginia Beach?

Underhood distribution panel has a crap load of fuses and even a relay that have something to do with the instrument panel.

Ha thanks for the reply. Got it working again! It was a 20A fuse in the goodies box. I looked there before missed it looking at all the other fuses.

Dumb question, I've got quite a few fuses missing from both boxed (power distribution and under the dash) Should all the sloths be filled? I know some of them are spares. Can anyone tell me specifically which ones?
