Im assuming these turn of after startup. When the alternator isn't running, these lights automatically come on. Your alternator doesn't start running until your car is running, because it is run by a belt from your engine. So, if your lights stay on after startup, either you have a snapped alternator belt or your alternator is buggered. We had our alternator belt snap the other day while we were driving down a hill, it was quite a scary experience as we didn't know what was going on and in automatics the breaks barely work without the alternater running.
In most cars there is an dash light adjustment of some sort. My guess is yours is turned down too far so the lights don't show.
No the dash lights should be with your parking lights.comment2: They are on separate circuits. Power usually goes from the "taillight fuse" to a small 5 amp dash light fuse and then to the dash dimmer wheel or knob. Then it feeds the dash lights. A blown tail light fuse makes the dash lights go out also. A blown dash fuse only affects the dash lights.

Check the dimmer setting for the dash lights. There should be a dial to adjust the brightness on the dash to the left of the steering wheel.
If you dash lights are not working check that your parking/brake lights are working also check fuses for cig lighter and interior lights that may help get the dash light working again.

Set your light switch to "auto" on the dash and your lights will come on automatically with the ignition. Turn your light switch on your dashboard to "auto" or "automatic" and the lights will come on and off with your ignition switch.
Generally, dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse so that if the tail fuse blows you'll know. When the tail light was "smashed", it shorted out the circuit and blew the fuse. You need to fix the tail light before you can get the dash lights to work.
Which light?, there are a lot of different lights.
IF it is the all the dash board lights it is probably a fuse, else if it only one light the switch on the is probably gone that lights up that light. There are no dash bulbs a they are LEDS so the chances of them blowing is slim
The dash lights on an Explorer are used to light the warning symbols and to illuminate the speedometer, gas gauge, and RPM gauge. These lights are controlled by fuses.
There should be a roll switch right next to your light switch on your dash to dim the lights with.
The dash light fuse gets its power from the tail light fuse. If the tail light fuse blows, you won't have any dash lights either.
It is generally a small fuse about 5 amps. It typically feeds off the tail light fuse and goes to the dash dimmer switch. If the tail light fuse is blown, you won't get dash lights either.
AnswerCheck the fuse Check the control switch on dash (if any) labeled with a light bulb symbolMy Interior lights worked when I turned them on manually with the roll switch, but when I set the switch to neutral and placed the auto switch to on, so that when the doors were opened the light should come on, they would not.Answer: The little push switch located on the side of the dash when the door is closed its pressed in by the door, when the door is open the switch springs out and the light comes on. If this switch is bad or has a short (jiggle) interior lights wont work when door is open and dash is set to AUTO. Replace!

It may be a speed sensor failure. Try checking the codes with a OBD II reader. Most Auto Pats Stores will be happy to read the codes for you.
With most vehicles you can turn on the parking lights or the headlights and the dash illumination lights light up without turning on the ignition switch.
