Thanks, Spiky. Last night as I was about to do some troubleshooting, lo and behold, the cluster backlights are on and bright. I don't want to try to explain why this just now happened or why, at the same time, I don't have any issues with the truck going into park, but now that I've seen at least this one symptom of the parking switch issue, I'm going to go ahead and try that fix.

Wanted to update this. Replaced the floor shifter switch and it appears to be resolved, although I think my battery is toast from all the drama (RIP $300 Odyssey battery). I wanted to have it documented here for posterity that I did not have the symptom of the P not being illuminated when I shifted to park, nor did I ever have any trouble with remote start. I think I probably always had the dash lights coming on, contrary to my title, but between them being dimmed, me not looking at them in the dark, and the thing being dead all the time, I never saw it until like a week after it started.

I think you missed something back in post #7 that might have saved a lot of diagnostic mis-adventure. The "P" will be illuminated whether the switch is bad or not, BUT... if the switch is bad the P will be white. If the switch is good, the P will be red and only turn white when you squeeze the release trigger on the shifter. You should always be aware of what color your P is....

Right, thanks, I just wasn't clear, when I said illuminated I mean it was illuminated red
