CHEVY DASHBOARD DOESN`T LIGHT AND HEADLIGHT LEFT

2002 Chevrolet Prizm

Electrical problem
2002 Chevy Prizm 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 101, 00 miles

My dashboard doesn`t light when knob to light it is rotated. I replaced bulbs in instrument cluster.
Also, alarm that goes off when headlights left on doesn`t work.
I found a dimmer relay in the fuse block under the hood, what does that do?

Thanks,
Mark

Actually, I believe that is for the headlights. There is a resister in the switch that when turned determines how much power makes it to the lights. My gut feeling is the switch is bad.
