Post no dash lights on 82 cutlass

I have a 82 cutlass that has no dash lights. i do have tail lights and the fuses are good. It was like that when i bought the car. I have one light that works and that is the right turn signal indicater.

I know this sounds pretty basic but it has to be considered. Have you pulled your dash bulbs and checked to see if they are burned out? also you may want to check the ground circuit for the dash panel. If memory serves me correctly it is a printed circuit dash. You may want to pull the dash circuit board out and check for breaks in the various circuits.

Hope this helps! good luck.
