You should chack all fuses, and relays first. If that is not the problem than you need to take the panel out. After you get the panel out, check if you have power at the plug in harness which you have to unplug to take the panel out. If you have power at the plug, than the instrument panel is junk. I would check your local junk yards for one because they're very expensive. Hope this helps
