Dash lights in '05 Base Tundra went out but no fuses are blown... Is the problem bulbs?

Asked by Nov 20, 2014 at 06:02 PM about the 2005 Toyota Tundra 2 Dr STD V6 Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

OEM Instrument panel lights, radio lights, and push button 'dash' lights went out.  The radio bright-dim feature that is activated when headlights are turned on works during the day but not after dark. I checked for blown fuses under the hood and in the mini-fuse panel under the steering wheel but couldn't find any with broken 'bars'.  Am I overlooking another fuse panel somewhere?  I can't imagine that several bulbs would go bad at the same time, so.... I'm again thinking that the problem must be circuit (fuse) related.  Anybody else had this experience/problem ?  Thanks!

It's highly unlikely that all bulbs went out at once, A service manual should point out all locations, also check the circuit with an ohm meter with the car battery disconnected to see if there is a short or a bad ground.
