1997 Nissan 200SX Interior illumination and cruise control

  • 1997 NISSAN 200SX
  • 175,000 MILES
Instrument cluster and dome lights work fine. But the illumination for the door locks, window switches, rear defrost, hazard and automatic gear shifter do not light up. Been looking for diagram to help me see if ground or something (I am only beginner so not a mechanic)

Also possibly unrelated, cruise control doesn't work. Cruise button will not light up when turned on and will not show cruise on dash so I know it is not just a bulb. I have replaced the switch twice with used ones and perhaps they are both bad, but the original one still light up but the cruise didn't work then either. I have also replace the cruise control computer to no avail. I checked the vacuum lines the best I could and saw nothing cracked or disconnected. Perhaps it is a combo of bad switch AND something else but I don't know how to test or best place to start first.
Do you
have the same problem?

For the cruise control not working, check the brake switch and for manual, the clutch switch as well. If they are out of adjustment, the cruise control would not work.

For the illumination lights, not working, you need to test the bulbs and check for power supply to these components. They are within the circuit for the meter cluster illumination and shares the same ground as the combination meter.
