Dash just died

1989 560sl. Was running an errand when the dash just died. Everything except the fuel economy meter stopped working (speedo, tach, odo, oil pressure, fuel gage, temp gague). Turn signals don't work either but the lights do turn on and off.

Am I looking at a fuse or something much more major? Any help is appreciated.

Turns out it was just a fuse. It controls all the dash functions. Sorry for the delay in replying I got knocked off line.
