My dashboard lights don't work. I thought it was the light bulb, as the old one I pulled out definitely was blown, but I put the new one in, and the panel still doesn't light up.

Aside from the obvious fuse blown, what else is there to consider before I consider replacing the printed wiring board for the entire instrument panel cluster?

The only failure of the printed curcuit board I have seen is that the board circuits can crack or break. This is repairable by soldering the crack. More often, the failure you describe is caused by no power to the board. Just check the power "in" connection for the board lamp circuit and see if you have 12 volts going to the board and track the problem back from there. :cheers

Thanks guys, a couple of things I should have thought of, but didn't. I'll check on those and see what's up.
