Well then you should be able to easily figure out why you aren't getting dash lights. If the wire doesn't have continuity to the dash lights or if you don't have power when the switch is turned boom you know the answer. If you have both of those then look to bulbs and/or dashboard. May have some cold solders that need reflowed.

If you have a reg cab or ext cab you should have the switch to turn off the passenger side airbag. I'd pull your center console bezel and see if it's behind the bezel and maybe someone swapped in crewcab cover that doesn't have the switch. They still have the mounting tabs so it could even be screwed to the bezel, just not showing.

It's a car seat safety feature. With crewcab you put the kids in the back, with reg cabs or ext cabs you may not be able to have them ride anywhere else than the front so you turn off the airbag. Now a days it's just a pressure sensor.

Does your dash airbag light work? Should come on with key in the run position.
