Question Interior lights don't turn on with headlights

I was driving the WRX the other night (2003) and the dash lights just turned off. The headlights are on, but the clock isn't dimmed and the gauge lighting and the temp control lighting isn't turning on. It's almost as if the interior lighting isn't getting the signal that the headlights are on. And yes, the dial on the stalk on the left side of the steering wheel is turned to full brightness. Any ideas?

Thanks!

ditto. do your taillights work? iirc the illumination fuse is also linked to the taillights.

yeah. fuses are ok. the indicator lights (check enging, brake, etc) still work, and the backlighting for the odometer is still fine, but the gauges don't light up. I'm going to try some more in depth troubleshooting tomorrow, but I was hoping someone might be able to give me a head start on where to look. Thanks for the replies!
