Sounds like you're pulling your instrument cluster so you can check wiring and switch function.

Maybe break out the electric meter? Dimmer switch itself, ground, fuse, fuse block, wiring, bulbs blown......I don't think the 5V limiter in the dash is the issue (gages only I think).

Make sure the plug is on all of the prongs of the switch

Limiter is gauge specific. Lights are 12V via dimmer.

Check the tail lights because when the tail lights go out, the dash lights go out to let you know that the tail lights are out.
