Ignition light is out

Hello everyone, and nice to meet you.

The light that surrounds the ignition key slot is out. It used to come on when I enter the car, a 2001 s-500 and now it does not.

I looked at the fuse chart and cannot determine if this is a fuse issue, or if there is a bulb involved.

thanks for the help.

on 2001 model it is most likely one of those miniature bulbs. Newer have LED
Some of them are big pain to get into.
When the odometer bulb on our ML burned, the stealer gave me $200 estimate for the replacement.
That made whole new meaning to the joke "how many MB technicians it take to change light bulb?"
