My 82 has a INST fuse location in the fuse panel. My dash lights were out when I bought car, INST fuse location was empty. Put a fuse, 5 amp, as I recall and they worked.

Was the 82 wired differently than what you are describing? or is there an additional fuse after the tail light fuse that goes to the dash lights?
