Dear friend, my first suggestion is to try turning your dimmer switch up which is usually located near or incorporated with your headlight switch. If that doesnt work, I would check the fuse panel for a blown fuse. Refer to your service manual for the fuse panel location and safe removal of the fuses.

    No Instrument Panel Lights


    The instrument panel has an internal short.
    This is very common failure with the instrument cluster. You need to take to the dealer for repairs.
