Cluster lights ( directly behind steering wheel) are out. Fuses are good and the directional indicators work. The rest of the dash board lights operate properly. Is there a fuseable link for these lights, if so where is it located?

Hi:

I don't believe there is a fuseable link for the dash lights. If I'm correct, the dash lights are part of a circuit board which may have become corroded or damaged. It could also be that the light has burned out.

Have you tried to look under the dash to check things?

Hi again:

If you have repaired the part once before, then it most likely has a crack or loose joint somewhere in the circuit board. I think you may be better off just getting one from a junk yard and replacing the old one.
