Can you check and see if the tailights are working when you turn the headlights on for me please?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
all lighting works on exterior. Just no-dash lights or ac adapter
Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 months ago.

Ok, there are several fuses for this, did you look at any fuses under the hood in the fuse and fusible link box?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
checked all fuses under hood and inside everything good

Ok, sorry, i know it's a lot of questions, but without a test light I have to base the answer off experience with these.

When you unlock the door with the key fob, are the dome lights coming on like they should?

Are you only missing the dash lights and not the dome lights?
