Typically the problem lies with the rheostat, the knob you turn to make the dash lights brighter or dimmer. When you turn the knob a little metal finger rubs along a circular spring changing the resistance, thus changing the intensity of illumination. That spring gets corroded. You can clean it, or you can replace it.
Remove the dash and remove the instrument cluster, the lights are in the back of the cluster.
your instrument panel lights can be dimmed(thumb wheel switch) down to practically no lights at all on your instrument cluster, this switch should be located most likely on the dash, left hand side of steering column. If this does not fix the problem ,then you have to check your fuse panel to see if you have a burnt out fuse.
