Angry Dash lights on my 1990 560 SEC

All the sudden all my dash lights and the little lights for the power windows etc went out. Any ideas?

First thing

Replace the fuse. Your owners manual will tell you which one to use

Post this in the w126 forum. Removing the cluster is pretty simple if you end up needing to do that.

Your trip meter reset button also works as a dimmer for those lights. Often times when you reset the trip meter you can turn those lights off.
