    The back of the dash has about 10 twist in lights. If you look under the dash you should be able to see them all. Make sure you have a light for each spot and make sure they all work. I was able to get replacement bulb and a new twist part at Napa.

    I know it sounds stupid, but have you tried turning the dimmer on the headlamp switch?

    Then I would say test the ribbon board behind the gauges.
