Any clues to fix instrument lights wanted.

When I got it two month ago, all the lights work.

4 weeks ago I turned on the head light. All out side lights work, but no instrument light comes on, all of the buttons are dark. A/C and radio work, but no light too.

All the fuses are ok.
I want to fix it by myself. Any body has experience? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

try tapping on the roller that allows you to adjust the dash and radio lights, I have had my 94J for about 8 yrs and every once in a while I have the same problem, but tapping on the roller or around it always seem to work. Im sure the connection underneath is loose, hope it helps.

yea it happens sometimes.. it's a loose wire or something, but i wouldn't fool with it.. just tap it or roll the dimmer switch back and forth a few times and press up on it pretty hard.. usually they will pop right back on.
