Unhappy HELP!!!! 2002 Taco No Dash lights No Vent Control lights No tail Lights

hey there one day i was driving and my dash lights went out. The speedo, tach, gas gauge, check engine light still Works but the amber color lights that light up my gauges went out along with the ones that light up the vent controls.
My tail Lights also went out, Not my brake lights only the tail lights
when i turn the headlight switch one click the dash SHOULD light up and two clicks the headlights turn on.
ive seen a thread similar to this but they were talking about blown fuses. ive checked my inside fuse box along with the fuse box under the hood, NO BLOWN FUSES
So when u turn the headlight switch one click to illuminate the dash u can hear a faint (click) under the hood inside the fuse box from the tail light relay, then two clicks to turn on the headlights and u can hear the headlight relay (click).
so i also have a 2003 tacoma and i noticed when you take the tail light relay out from the fuse box uner the hood THE SAME EXACT THING HAPPENS!!!!!! NO ILLUMINATED DASH AND NO TAIL LIGHTS!!!! ive tried putting the 2003 relay in my 2002 truck and vise versa my relay works in the 2003 fine.

i did not install any new parts previous to this happening
HEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

this thread got me bothered to figure it out, went outside fuses were good and found a relay in the main fuse box in the engine bay "TAIL" and it was loose about to pop off, snugged it down and the lights came right on.

Yep ... The front corner lights - like most of the dash illumination lights - are on the tail circuit.
