Dash issue.. Need help plzzz

It first started when I noticed that when I turned on my high beams that when I turned them off my high beam indicator would stay on even if I cycled to the low beams. Then on top of that the head lights dont turn off when I turn the switch to turn them off. Now yesterday my low light fuel indicator light stoped working. The fuel gauge has never worked but the low light indicator always has and now nothing. Oh if any one wants to know right around 400 miles is when you run out of gass and come to a dead stop.
So ... what might of caused this? I know I drove threw some really bad rain last week and when I was doing it I cycled through my park lights and hazards durring the rain storm. I wonder if some thing shorted. I thought maybe a bad relay for the head lights since I think they turn off and reset when you turn the car off and back on again.

vehicle also had dealer installed fog lights originally too....

I guess it is time to bust out the multi-meter. I will start where cougar said I should.
Thanks to all.

Now it is time to look for a new one.
I am not happy about this at all. This is what happens when you work too much and can not hunt down electrical problems in your car. I came out at 415 am and found it this way. My wife did most of the crying. Oh well I guess I will be driving the wrx for a while.

you think mice chewing the wires shorted it then?
Hey, if by any chance the shift lever rod, what the knob screws onto, is in any way still straight, could i get that form you. When I torch heat bent mine after the lift, i pretty much put a crack in the one, and I am scared to keep driving it that way.

Seems like a fusible link didn't do it's job huh?
Seriously, I am sorry for you're loss.
But at least she went driving up 'til the last day. Not rotting away in JY somewhere.
There is no more honorable way to go than in a blaze of glory. Like the Viking Kings on their journey to Valhalla.
