From what I am reading you have several tiny dash light bulbs out. It could be just as simple as pulling the cluster, unscrewing the old ones and popping in new ones. It is a very common thing and since most of them are tiny incandescent they have filaments that do burn out. They are cheap and easy to replace if you are good with tools.

You mean to tell me that the info center read out is a lot of small bulbs?. every other light on the dash for the other gauges are working fine.

No. The info dash is not, just the backlighting is. If you have a digital dash display, then those are LED and then that means that you probably have a burnt out capacitor or resistor or transistor somewhere on your PCB that is off specs. Current may be flowing through but either too much or too little causing your problem and that means hours of searching for the issue. In such a case people don't have time to search for such things and simply replace the unit.
