93 lx dash lights out

headlights and tail lights work but all of a sudden the dash lights quit working. i took the dimmer switch out and looked it over, no corrosion but i do see some wear. i figured i could jump the plug to rule out the dim switch but i guess im not doing it right. plug is 4 prong- with head lights on i get this from left to right, hot hot hot not hot, with lights off i get hot, not hot, hot, not hot. the switch is $100 and before i order it i want to make sure its bad. anyone know how to jump the switch plug to get the dash lights to come on? thanks for the help. forgot to mention no blown fuses

Look inside the back of the dimmer switch. Each pin should have a letter. You should be able to jump between the R & I pins at the connector end to bypass the dim function. The D1 & D2 pins are for the dome lamp.
