It could be one of two problems. It's kinda hard to explain. The Instrument panel wiring is seperated in two. It could be a bulb. Or the wiring in the panel could have a short. (like mine did) If you know any electrical. You can fix it. You have to take out the panel to see what it could be. If it's the bulb then your golden. When you take out the panel you will see how the wiring is. (it looks like the rear defrost lines on your back window). If it's the wiring then you will have to use a piece of speaker wire about 6 inches long. And use it to jumper power from a good bulb to where the bad side of the panel is.

I suggest you invest in a 1 year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com It is what I used when I disassembled the dash on my car, and is way better than a paper manual. Another tip is to keep some zip lock bags, and a sharpie handy, and seperate and label all hardware that you remove to help your reassembly

It is most probably that the bulb inside which illuminates the panel is blown.It is a big job to get to but simple to fix.Hope this helps.
