So today the lower lights of my dash lights went out! The dimmer switch, shifter panel lights, and key ring. All other lights function and i've checked the fuses and reset the ECU(taking battery out). The instrument panel still works and the lights are turn all the way up and way too bright for me. Whats next? short somewhere?

What BT said about the lights being separate... I had a loose wire (illumination) behind my head unit and it caused a fuse to blow (panel under the drivers side dash) and while this fuse was out, my headunit wouldn't turn on, and my gauges (speed-o and SE-R oil pressure/mpg/volts) all didn't light up... but yet my a/c controls, shifter and key ring were on, lol... so weird how Nissan divided it horizontally.
Then this past weekend after I did the fog light mod (05-06's need this mod) to use my fogs w/just my parking lights I forgot to connect the wire that keeps my parking lights hooked up (red/blue wire on main plug) in the fuse box (under the hood). When these were out, I noticed my a/c controls and shifter were also not lit up... but my keyring still was... so they are connected somehow as well...
So if it's not a fuse, check bulbs (first suspect), then if still not working, if you did any electrical work lately, see if something is loose/not connected... also, check to make sure your parking lights are on or not... (FYI, all of my other lights, including blinkers still worked, ONLY parking lights did not come on)
