The fuse will be marked "htr A/C".It might be on the very top row of 2 fuses or it might be in the center next to "B/U horn". There is also a resistor on the heaterbox beside the heater motor that goes bad quite often. It could also be a worn out fan switch inside the car. I would replace the resisitor first.

maybe you have dimmed them when you last cleaned or you have a wireing prob

Is it the illumination lights? If so, that sounds like a bad headlight switch-when you put the park lights on (first click), it turns on the dash illumination lights.
If it is warning lights or other lights on the dash, it could be a bad ignition switch.

There shouldnt be a speed sensor of any kind on that model. I beleive you only have a speedometer cable.

The one that doesn't light is connected to a wire or a switch that is shorted. You will have to trace the wire leaving from there, find the short and insulate the bear metal part.
If the wire is intact then the wiper switch is defective, you will have to replace it. You can get it very cheaply at a breakers yard, you really don't need a brand new one.

Its the same system to the light. You could take the car to Sears or an other large auto parts store and ask them to check the chargeing system.They check it for free. Or if you have a volt meter, with the engine running check the volts at the battery. It should be from 12-14 volts. As long as it says 12.5 volts up to 14 volts then your alternator is chargeing and could be you battery is bad.

First disconnect neg batt cable, don't forget this or possible air bag deployment.
Remove airbag screws behind steering wheel.unplug the plug for bag and horn. Remove steering wheel nut.pull wheel. usually you can grab both sides of wheel and vigorously **** one side and then the other or use a puller.

Notice two marks on wheel and shaft for reinstall line them up.now you are looking at a white turn sig switch.remove the screws remove sig lever pull straight up on switch enough to lay aside out of your way. Now there is a lockplate there.you will need to press down on plate and remove lock ring (they make a tool for this called lock plate depressor) remove plate. There is a torx screw right in front of you remove this. Now lock will pull out.

Good luck.
