damn man, a chill pill would be good. maybe check your wiring behind the fuse panel. ive had connections pop off stuff and just needed to put them back in.

Is it just your dash lights not working? Or are your parking, running and dash lights all not working?

Well, that should be your answer. Track that dead wire down and found out where it is supposed to go and re wire it and see if that works. A good multimeter or test light would really come in handy.

where does the wire go from the fuse box ? does it attach to the instrument panel somewhere or does it go further back toward firewall?

Haven't a clue. I would either look in your owners manual and see if it tells you in there somewhere. If not, start digging. Just take your gauge panels off and find the wire and trace it to where it starts and hopefully you'll find the problem.
