unscrew the screws above the gauge cluster up and behing the steering wheel that connects the vents to the dash.....after gettin the screws out pull on that part and it should pop out eventually (might take some work)u have to disconnect the emergency flashers and rear defrost switches, then take that piece of your dash out (takes time getting it past the steering wheel, but it does come out). Now you will see your gauges and some other wires and crap, theres 4 screws holding the cluster compartment in there take those off and un-do all the wire clusters in the back (should be like 4 or 5 don't remember) now you have your cluster compartment out and u should be able to do the rest.....

Do the interior lights work in the gear selector or the climate controls? If none of them work, suspect a fuse or something else. If it's just behind the gauges and all have gone out, then the board behind the gauges may be fried. But assuming none of those are the case, you'll need to remove the dash and the bulbs are located behind the gauges. Not a task for the timid.

Where would the dash voltage regulator that controls the fuel and temp gauges be located on a 1991 Nissan Pathfiner?

The "cluster refers to the whole guage, the speedometer, tachometer, fuel and temp guages and whatever else yours has. The voltage regulator you're looking for is behind the guages on the back right hand side. Here's a link to a webpage showing how to replace it.

They are both powered by an 8 volt regulator on the cluster. When that regulator starts going bad the gauges dont get any power and stop working. If you google it it there is a simple procedure to replace it if you are handy with a soldering iron.

Will loose wires effect intrumental panel gauges from lighting up in a 1998 Nissan sentra?

No. The spark plug wires have nothing to do with the illumination of dash gauges. Check your fuse box for blown fuses. A blown fuse that corresponds to the instrument cluster will cause that.
