Running light issue

Hey everyone. Thanks for allowing me to join the group. I have a question about my running lights on my 88. I replaced 3 bad fuses but, still no dash or running lights. I have headlights, break lights, and back up lights. What else could it possibly be? Relay maybe?

Head light switch. Over time the insides get corroded. It can be taken apart after you get it out of the dash, cleaned and greased (for ease of movement) or just replaced.

Also check the fuse terminals for the PARK/TAIL circuit. The terminals also corrode, and repeated shockwaves from the parking brake being released can and does eventually break weak terminals. If the fuse wiggles in the slot, chances are you have a broken terminal, which results in an open circuit.
