w115 interior lights not working...?

hey guys...so my '76 w115 300d's interior lights - both front and rear - just stopped working...both when the door is opened or when using the switches...i checked the fuse (#1) and it was still good - as was the trunk light (also on #1 fuse)...the bulbs are still good and the multimeter says there is no voltage at the terminals for either bulb...with all the switch settings cycled through...especially odd seeing as how i havent done any electrical modifications as of late....other than changing a burnt out sealed beam headlight...

wondering if anyone else has had this problem - or thoughts on where to find the culprit...

thanks as always!

Check the switch: is there voltage at the switch?
