Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi Guys.  

I need help.  My instrument cluster illumination lighting have stopped working.  I'm trying to trace the problem.  Only illumination not working.  everything else works great.  Does anyone have a wiring diagram for that area or know the color of the wiring providing power to the lights?

Thanks in advance for any help.

On many cars, yours I don't know, but many when the taillight fuse blows the dash lights go with, so you won't be driving around without taillights and not know

In other words it MIGHT be tied to a taillight short so before you rip apart the dash...

Thanks for you input but the tail lights work fine.

I replaced the bulbs by taking the cluster off (Google how to do this) It only took 30 min. or so.
