I have a 97 540, and the light in dash does not light up, the ones in the odometer and radio, and climate control. I checked the fuses in the glove box and the trunk and they are all good. Is there any other fuse locations in the car. Please help if anyone knows anything about this problem.

The bulb in that small window is blown. I have just replaced mine. Bulb is $2.65 (from dealer) and it takes 20 minutes (DIY). Hope this helps.
