check for cut wires,or your head light may be bad,did you turn the knob on your switch to see if dash lights come on.

THAT SWITCH WORKS.I CAN ONLY USE THE HIGH BEAMS THOUGH.OR THE RUNNING LIGHTS. THE HEADLIGHTS DONT WORK.OMG I CALLED A SHOP TO SEE HOW MUCH IT WOULD BE AND THEIR SAYIN AROUND $400.OMG!BUT IM GOING TO CHECK THE BULBS.AND IF NOT THEN BUY THE SWITCH.BUT DONT I NEED A STEERING WHEEL PULLER?IM SCARED TO PULL THE STEERING WHEEL BECAUSE OF THE AIRBAG!

NO steering wheel would not have to come off.

Yikes, I have the same problem with a 96 Galant. Just this weekend the dashboard light stopped working. Checked all the fuses and no problem. I wonder if the dashboard lights just went dead and have to be replaced. Thank God my Headlights work however. I don't want to pay $400 bucks either. has anyone ever had this problem or done this kind of job before.

Yes on doughter in laws 96,their was a problem in the turn signal switch in all 96,s.pull cover off from around stering collum,behind stering wheel.replace turn signal switch.2 small boltes and a plugin.
