OK, so something more definitive has happened. The last few days I noticed a couple of other things. It wasn't the dash light dimming just the clock (I don't drive much at night so when I saw the clock dimming I assumed the dash was as well). Then, the other day, I was driving as it was getting dark and I hadn't turned my headlights on yet. I noticed that, as the clock faded, the dash lights actually came on when I put my foot on the brake. That is, unless I turned the headlights on and then everything behaved as it should. Until tonight. I was driving home this evening and my dash lights went out altogether (the clock stayed on) whether I was braking or not. I got home shortly afterward and pulled in in front of my truck and noticed I had no tail lights or brake lights working.
I put it in Park and now it will not come out of Park. I don't know if something shorted out finally and caused it to stick or of there is an issue having to do with the shifter that was causing all the weird light symptoms. I no longer hear the clicking under the shift console as well. Does all of this point more specifically to anything?
