190e dash light help please

Hey i need some advice, my 1991 190e has no dash light working. I mean the lights that light up the gauge faces and the like, the "idiot lights" under the dash cluster work fine, and the headlights work fine, and the high beam indicator works finw too. Everything in the car works great except the interior lights any help would be great. I thought it may be the headlight switch, but i wanted to ask a much more experienced crowd their opinion. Please let me know what you all think, and thanks for your time,

PS ALso what is the "normal" engine operating temp of my 91 190e 2.3 8 valve? The aux fan comes on at about the middle of the 80-120', and does not get hotter at all, never hite the 120 line at all, even in traffic on a hot day, if i had a guess i would say it runs about 95'C

Do a search - common issue and typically not a bad DIY fix.
