No dash lights, help! (pics)

Here we go. My dash lights went out a while back one night as I was driving. I pulled out of a gas station after filling up my tires and punched is, and as I hit 2nd gear the dash lights and A/C control lights went out. Like everyone else, clock dims fine and everything else works (headlights, taillights, dome light).

So, I replaced the headlight switch. My original one was fine, the spring intact and all contacts looked good. New one did nothing.

Here are 2 pictures of the headlight switch electrical harness (backside of headlight switch). I noticed that slightly brown and cracked connection, but wonder if its causing the problems?




Now if we look at the switch we notice it is 3 rows of 3 plugs. Labeling them like this:

123
456
789

I used my electrical test light on each of them with KOEO and here are the results:

1,2,8,9 = light on
3,4,5,6,7 = light off

I'm no electrical genius, but does anyone have any ideas??

Thanks in advance,
Ben

thanks, I checked all my fuses under the hood and under the dash and they were fine. I'll go look again, but I don't think that's the problem.

Anyone else ever seen this and fixed it??
