no dash lights

I have a question. I have a 96 chevy 1/2 ton 4x4. I was coming home last night and all of a sudden my dash lights when out. Is there a fuse for this and if so could you tell me where it is if not any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Doc here,

Cluster lamps are usually on the "Hot At All Times" Buss on the fuse buss..

If They don't have a separate fuse marked CTSY, INSTR, or DOME...they could be located with the tail lamp Fuse. (older Chevy's were this way..so you could tell when the tails were out..)

Another killer is when your power is good up to the dimmer rheostat on the lamp switch, but is dead at the lamps..This usually means the rheostat has died and a switch replacement will be needed.
