Default 2003 Santa Fe dash lights

The lights on my dash no longer work, and i was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on what might be causing the outage, a fuse does not seem to be the problem.

What fuse did you check? Are you sure the dimmer wasn't accidently turned all the way down?

My dash lights aren't working on either side, the center is illuminated, but not the left or right sides. The shifter console has also lost it's lights on the gear side and the A/C/Heater dials are also without lights on the right side.

Any ideas?

Default dash lights,

the fuse is fine, the dimmer is set to bright, could it be that all the bulbs have burned out ( it is possible my wife didn't notice until the speedometer light went black ).

Take circuit tester and check for voltage at the dimmer switch. The dimmer is on the ground side of the dash harness. If the dimmer switch fails or the dimmer switch ground wire is broken, every light it controls will go out.
