Dash wiring issues

First the dash lights starting going off for awhile then turn on ow they are always off. Then my daughter said her tail lights are not working either so I change all four double filament bulbs. Still nothing.
Tomorrow I will go Brutus fuse box battery and the drivers door panel. I am concerned it may be one of those big boxy looking fuses and I not sure how to remove them. Twist? Or just pull?
I am hoping it is not huge wiring issues in the dash
I also noticed the dial that dims the dash does not work. It is a dial that syncs in close to dash on one push, then pops out further on second push. Turning dial makes no difference on dashboard.

2) my oil's clean so I am not burning coolant, but the engine uses what reservoir dry in about three days. There is also small puddles of coolant on top of the rad fan cowling when I go to fill up the rad reservoir.

Thanks for your insight and wisdom!

Do you
have the same problem?

Fill coolant system then pressure check for leaks. May be the radiator. For lights check fuse 32 then if that is good check for a shorted wire either at a trailer connector and or green/yellow wire leading back to lights. For dash lights it may be the dimming circuit in dash itself that is going bad or a poor connection if dash has been out.
