Have replaced light and dimmer switch. Still no power to dash lights. Blue red wire now has 12 volts, pink black wire has 0 volts. What do you suggest?

Lets look at the bulbs to see if they are good when you say some lights light up which ones? Can you upload a piture? Here are the cluster lighting wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works:

This guide will help you see where you loose power be sure to check the grounds as well.

I have disconnected the plug ins to the speedometer unit, I have no power to the red/ blue wire which should be the power source to the lights on dash. Rechecked fuses all are good ground is good. What next? I am am not sure.

It looks like the headlight switch is bad then. I would replace it. Fuse #11 is good correct? Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find.

Do you have power at the red and yellow wire going into the headlight switch?
