SL 500 combi instrument problem

The combi instrument unit of my SL 500 has suddenly stopped working. i.e. speedo, petrol gauge, temp gauge etc. All the bulbs don't work (not illuminating when ignition switched on). Only the airbag light comes on.

I have checked the fuses, dis and re connected the battery but looks like I need to take it the garage for diagnostic computer.

Wondering if anyone had any ideas before going down the expensive route.

Thanks in advance

I'm not familiar with this car and this issue but I would check that the cluster ground wiring is fine as well as the power. If all go at once, it would hardly be something else (assuming you already checked the correct fuses).

I see you posted the question at Audio & Telematics, fine, but I'd try on the SL forum too if you don't get help (is it a 129 or 230?).
