Panel lamp fuse is powered from the headlight switch when the lights are on.

Check all fuses with a test light to verify. The headlight switch may have failed but you need to check for power out of the switch for the rear tail lights

Okay so turn head lights on and then re check power at that fuse? All the other fuses have power and are good headlights work just no parking lights dash lights or tail lighta but they were workin yesterday just not today so is it possible that the light switch is no good even though the hadlights come on?

So if the orange and red wire have power at the switch that means switch is no good? Theres been a delay with my headlights coming on for a few days before this mess happened so I think th eswitch finall quit

If you have power in, then you need to check for power out.

It sounds like the switch
