Hardly anyone read this the first time I posted it, so i will try again. The lights behind my gauges are out. Not one, but all. The odometer, and overhead CPU still light up. I have checked fuses. Any Ideas?

Sounds like a loose connection on one of the connectors in the dash.

I would check the rheostat. According the the MM, the lights are independent for the most part. The only common component is the rheostat that controls dimming. it doesnt control the other items that you mentioned are fine, like the blinkers and warning lights.

What about the radio?

Problem fixed. Pulled the switch behind the rheostat...still didnt come on. Went and pulled all possible fuses and put em back in and they were on. Weird, but at least it works now.
