dash/parking lights out??

sup fanatics. So i came out to my car after work and i was leaving, turned on the headlights and the parking/dash lights came on...then went out and they won't come back.. Im thinking maybe a fuse blew. but i checked them all and they all seem fine. What else could it be? a bulb maybe?

thanks

My car was doing this recently. When I would mess with the roller switch/dimmer for the dash lights (near the head light switch) my lights would flicker. I had that switch replaced under warranty.

The dealership I took mine to is large and has a big service dept. Even they didnt have the part. They had to call to every dealership in the Phx area and found one across town. Hope yer dealer has the switch or they might have to order it. Good Luck
