    Having difficulty tracing the fault which is preventing the dash lights from illuminating. Checked fuses and removed binnacle to check bulbs, all seems OK.
    Suspect it may therefore be a failed resistor in the switch itself (its the type where you turn the pull-switch left or right to dim/brighten the dash lights). I'm trying to source a replacement but so far without success.

    Yes Bill, the switch may be the problem. Just check to see if you got voltage going into it and a varied amount coming out.
