Are you talking about instrument illumination or warning lights, these maybe separate circuits. Did the person check for voltage at the fuse circuit, even if the fuse is good, if there is no voltage, the circuit is dead. Did the person check for any possible codes?

Did not check for codes, the lights not working are the dash lights where the spedomoter is and rpm dial and the dome light I thought it was the drl relay? Is that a fuse I can buy and put in or not.

Do you have a dimmer control for the dash lites, you might try turning that, see if the dash lites come back? Also, check the radio/ interior lamp fuse 10amp, use a testlite the fuse circuit should be hot all the time.
