My dash lights suddenly went out about 6 months ago. on 2002 Kia Spectra

The lights affected are the dash, heater and ash tray light. My drivers side tailight and marker light do not work either. I checked all the fuses and bulbs and they are all ok. Is this a short? How much do you think it would cost to get this repaired?

time and material type job. it needs to be looked at to determine issue.sorry best i can do
I took it to the dealer and they spent over 6 hours on my car. They found that the clutch of wires on the back drivers side quarter panel had frayed wires. The fixed them and repositioned the wires so that they wont rub. I got the car back and the dash lights came on for a moment and then went out again. I am at a loss, I cant afford another 6 hours of labor......
