Is your fuse blown? I have the same problem with my truck. Are any other lights out, or just the instrument panel lights? Often the fuse powers other things. For instance my instrument panel lights are out and so are my running lights. I have found that I have a short somewhere in the wiring. If you replace the fuse and it blows again It is probable that you do as well. I am not sure that the instrument panel is a bulb or not could be analog lights. I am working on the same problem now.

AnswerDid you install a radio>? It is a common mistake to use the instrument light wire as a ground. If not, It could be a fuse, the dimmer switch, or the bulb, as a rule, all the lights dont blow at the same time. Some cars use a dimmer module, newer and high end imports especially going back (in my experience to 92 and possibly earlier in imports).

Without knowing what you've tried already, I would start with checking the condition of the fuse that controls the dash lights. It may protect more than just dash lights so refer to owners manual, it may or may not tell what the specifications are. If that's OK, then there may be a problem in the light switch or a relay connected to it for the the problem.
