Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The EVIC is integral to the instrument cluster on this car rather than a separate module, so if the rest of the instrument cluster functions are ok then the problem won't be a blown fuse, but if the entire instrument cluster is inoperative then a loss of power or ground is definitely possible. An internal issue in the instrument cluster would be a likely cause for this either way though.

Does the rest of the instrument cluster work correctly?
