Unfortunately, it sounds as if one of the bulbs are burnt out inside the instrument cluster. You are going to need to get a book to help guide you in repairing this problem. You can buy a book at an auto parts store, or you can go to the Library and take a notepad and pencil with you.
The odometer light fuse also controls other lights on your instrument panel. The odometer light can be removed by removing the instrument panel cover. Push the light bulb in and turn at the same time. The light bulb will come out. Replace it with a new light bulb.

instrument panel or controls?
There is another fuse box under the hood and next to the battery. This fuse controls the horn, dashboard lights, and the tail lights.
lights for dash heater controls
You have a blown instrument lights fuse or it is just turned off. There is a rheostat that controls the brightness of the lights. Find it and adjust the brightness.
Should be parking/tail/dash lights on a common circuit
You can't just replace the lights you would have to replace the whole control cluster.
Cluster means all the gauges and warning lights on a vehicle i.e. fuel gauge,temp gauge speedometer, odometer, oil pressure warning lights etc.
Try the fuse box, prolly a burnt out fuse.
The tripmeter knob located near the odometer on the instrument panal can be rotated left or right to accomplish this.
Check your fuses for these devices. Or while under the dash you have accidentally unplugged them.
The instrument panel lights are controlled by the same fuse as the tail lights which is a 15 amp fuse located in the panel in the engine compartment adjacent to the battery. The fuse is only labeled for the tail lights.
Instrument lights fuse blown. ANSWER #2 There is a dimmer switch that controls the illumination of the instrument panel; it may be bad or may have been accidentally turned OFF or DOWN while cleaning the dashboard.
check for a loose wire at the fuse box
my instrument cluster and my back window wiper and the heat on my 1999 dodge caravan is working
Many of these controls are Vacuum operated. You may have a problem where the "Main" Vacuum line has broken. See if you can locate this line by using your manual and make sure that it is intact. TommyTrouble
If they are all not working, I would suspect a blown fuse, or they are just turned off. There is a rheostat used to control the brightness of the instrument lights. If it is turned too far the lights will go off. Find the control and turn it. Sometimes it is the reset button for the odometer and sometimes it is a separate control. Look in your owner's manual for the location.
I had the same issue. In the instrument cluster there are 3 boards. The smallest board with the odometer and transmission status displays also has the 4 lights for the back lighting. This board is plugged into the main board and can easily be changed. Theses lights short out and cannot be changed out individually, the only thing you can do is replace this board.
The lights on the odometer on a 1999 Chevy Blazer might not work because of a burned out fuse. They might also not work if the lights are burned out.
I'm not sure if the following fuses are for the dash lights - the owner's manual lists them for " instrument cluster " location # 11 - 7.5 amp fuse for instrument cluster location # 15 - 7.5 amp fuse for instrument cluster location # 33 - 15 amp fuse instrument cluster/headlamps/DRL module
the dimmer switch that controls your dash light brightness may be bad.
I have a 99 Jeep wrangler it has panel lights for the heater and air conditioner controls. So pull out your glove box. Fuse # 3 cavity it should be a red 10 amp fuse. Check to see if that is blown. One other thing. Your head light which is the dimmer switch for your panel lights. Turn your headlight switch counterclockwise all the way before it clicks your panel lights should get bright. Clockwise should get dimmer
