The stop lights not working would result in the shift interlock preventing the gear from being shifted out of Park.
This could be related to the dash lights not showing or a separate matter.
If you are a DIY person, then you can try fixing the problem. It could be easy or it could be difficult to work on but I don't think it requires the dash to be removed, though it could be the case.
Check all the fuses again, especially those under hood.
