hello did all the lights go out or just where the instrument cluster is
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Hello,

Only the instrument cluster gages but not light

Expert:  ssnyder replied 5 years ago.

If you experience this concern and can not isolate the source of the concern, inspect the wiring coming out of the IP relay block for a short to ground. Reports from the field have found issues with harness pictured below and the concern can usually be located 8 inches below the IP relay block.

(See Photo Below) The arrow shows where the harness rubs on the IP relay block support bracket near the holding clip. Remove the harness from the clip and inspect carefully. Repair as needed and insulate the edge to prevent a repeat occurrence.
