I don't drive at night very often but a friend asked if I could drive his daughter to a restaurant for her birthday as a surprise. When i turned my lights on, the instrument cluster backlights and the light in the handbrake lever did not iluminate. The headlights, indicators etc all worked just no dash backlighting. I have owned the car for 10 years and never had any electrical issues. There are no blown fuses and I have'nt yet removed the dash to inspect. I don't have birdmans fuse blocks but i have checked the circuit for continuity at across the fuse for the instrument lighting and it was fine. This fuse also controls one of the park lights and both park lights were working fine. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks.
