98 Altima dash lights are not working

Over the weekend, my dashboard lights no longer work with the headlights on.

The radio (w/CD player) lights work until I turn on the headlights and then that light goes out, but the radio continues to play.

I've checked every fuse (under the steering wheel & under the hood) and they all look fine. Are there any other fuses?

Thanks for your help,

Check all your turnsignal and running lights front and rear. Look for a double filliment bulb that has one filliment burned out and jumped over connecting to the other filliment.

I had to take the dash apart and clean the contacts for the instrument panel with spray electrical cleaner. then it worked has for the last few months.
