Instrument lights not working

My instrument lights (all except turn signal indicators) aren't working. I switched out all the bulbs and nothing. Where should I start?

Make sure there is a good ground to the instrument cluster board.

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

Mine did the same thing.Try running a wire from the speedo screws on the back to ground and test the lights. Mine lost ground and this is the repair I did to fix.

Mine worked after I rotated my headlight switch back and forth a few times.
