The 3 amp fuse gets power through the dash dimmer rheostat on the headlight switch by way of the green wire. The dimmer rheostat is probably burned out. A temporary fix is to move the green wire to the spare terminal on the headlight switch next to the tail light (black wire) terminal. The dash lights will then be full bright.

I would remove the headlight switch and check the reostat in it. Also clean the tab where it makes to ground. Check the condition of the reostat (coiled wire that looks like a slinky)

The terminals can be removed out of the connector, by inserting a small narrow screwdriver (Jewlers size) into the slot next to the back of the terminal to bend the tab down that latches it into the connector plug. You can see the tiny tab on the bottom side of this terminal.
