Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the only problem is with instrument cluster illumination then the problem would likely be in the cluster itself, but if no illumination works then it may be a body controller, dimmer switch or wiring issue.

Was the dealer unable to duplicate the lighting issue?

Is the problem affecting the radio, a/c control head, etc or just the instrument cluster?
