No but the radio and climate control lights work until I turn on parking lights on then they go out so they should have power prior to. The switch being turned on

The fuse only goes to the rheostat built into the light switch so you can turn up and down the lights.

I will check it and let you know

ok. Then we can go from there. If fuse is good then move lights up and down to see if you have any lights getting bright or dim to include dash, radio and climate lights.
