They are controlled by the same circuit. Check for blown fuse. Also check for possibly bad lighting relay.

Thanks, I was looking in the wrong fuse box. Found blown fuse. But blown instant after replacing. Turned dimmer switch to off and lights to off replaced fuse. Works! turned lights to on position. Still works. turned dimmer to partly on. still works. Scared to turn dimmer to full on position. LOL
