Is the instrument cluster the only thing which is dark or are all instruments illumination lights out?

I can not tell what your referring to.

I know the instrument cluster lights are out. Does the radio and climate control back lighting work?

I'll try to find out the part # tomorrow from a friend who works on cars. Talk to you then.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 7 months ago.

I do not need a instrument cluster part number.

All interior lights are on the same circuit. So this is going to be broken wires to the instrument cluster, blown bulbs in the cluster, or a bad cluster. Using the wire diagram below can you verify power and ground are getting to the cluster with the lights on.
