Hold on. Before you get wrapped around the axle, what "dimmer relay" are you referring to? A relay turns on or off. Dash lights are variable with the dash light rheostat. If some of the bulbs on the instrument cluster are working properly, you know the rheostat is working along with the headlight switch so you can forget those. Most commonly a few of the dash back lighting bulbs will just be burned out. Since I don't know how you determined they "checked out", if they are indeed okay and other bulbs on that circuit work, look for a crack in the copper circuits that connect them. If you just checked the dead bulbs visually, replace them.
