'77 280E Dash lights

I am wondering why the dash lights in my 1977 280E are not working. This is a new car and I am wondering if there is a fuse or something that needs to be replaced. and yes the dial that turns the light on and off and makes it brighter, is all the way on! I cant figure this one out!!! HELP!!

Could be something altogether different I suppose, but that rheostat you referred to fails with some regularity.
