Check your four way flasher switch, did it get depressed when you pulled the dash?
Also it sounds like it could be a poor ground, first check the ground to the intstrument cluster, then the ground of the tail light bulbs, or the bulbs may be reversed, do your brake lights work when the lights are off?
