Dash lights not working?????

My dash lights behind the gauge cluster are not working. I have checked all fuses and all are good. My radio and cigarette lighter and all other lights work. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have had an issue with my dash lights, they would go off whenever i put my window up..... Turns out that the issue was a spider web or something was shorting out a wire. Try sticking your hand up underneath your steering column and moving wires around. Fixed my problem, might be worth a shot.

I checked all wiring under the dash and all seem to be okay. Is there internal bulbs inside of the dash cluster that burn out? Any help appreciated.

Yes, there are bulbs. I think it's 6x 194 type bulbs. All but one of mine was out when I pulled my gauge cluster to fix them. There's a bunch of idiot light bulbs but they are a smaller bulb and I didn't replace any of them.

It's about a 1-2 hour job to pull the cluster, change the bulbs and reinstall. An afternoon well spent for me.

ok thanks. I just realized that the lights behind my a/c control knobs are out also, so im guessing its more than just burnt bulbs?
