Hi Steve .

If the complete cluster lights where not working along with the rest of the dash lights then yes light switch issue if tail lights where out .but this is not your problem.

You will have to remove the dash cluster again and check the connecntion on the back side check all pins have contact , the printed circuit on the back is known to fail and cause the lights to fail on one side if this cluster is a used part have the printed circuit checked there has to be a break in one of the circuit lines if the connections on the back have full contact.

Check this then please get back to me .

PS , Did you notice any gauge issue and lights flashing on and off.
