Sounds like a blown 5 amp fuse for the dash backlighting, or a bad dimmer switch.
check the 5 and 2 amp fuses in the left side dash fuse box.

OK.
If you tested for a varying voltage from the switch when adjusting the dimmer, then may have a broken wire (tan) after the switch, or possibly a splice before all the components.

Probably going to have to get a hold of a Chiton or Motor manual.
Try going to your local dealer. Go ask a Tech if he could get you a quick printout of the circuit.
I have done that for people before.
Not a big deal. Most guys are happy to help.

I started up my 2006 Silverado after sitting idle for a while and when I put it in gear, the whole electric system died and the engine cut off.

so what happened next? Did you restart it? Did the electrical come back on? or is it still 'everything dead?

First thing I would look at is your battery cable connections and battery voltage
