Lightbulb No Windstar dash lights

The other night, while driving all the instrument lights went out on my 96 Windstar. Flicking the headlight switch on and off made them come on for about 1 min., they blinked, and then went out for good. I checked out the fuses, they looked and tested OK. Tried a new headlight switch, still no lights. Tried a used dimmer switch from a junkyard, still no lights. I have power going to the dimmer switch all the time at terminals 1 & 2, and power to #3 when the headlight switch is turned on. So I guess that eliminates a fuse problem and the headlight switch possibility. Does anyone have any ideas? I probably should try a new dimmer switch, as I don't have proof that the used one was any good.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

You should be getting power to pin 5 if the switch is working..Light blue and red

Thanks, Homer. I'll give that a try. I saw that same solution for the same problem that someone was having with a 96 Ranger. I thought that the wiring schematics might be similar. Let you know how I made out.
Thanks again
