Ok guys, 06 CLS 500 base. Cluster backlighting is completely out. Dealer says entire cluster assembly has to be replaced. Thing is all gauges work. At night all I see is the needles though. Any ideas, maybe something simple or rebuilding ideas? Thanks a bunch

No bulbs, check ribbon cables and board condition. All visually fine, you can try replacing cluster with used part, need to swap center board to transfer existing data (mileage, etc.) to replacement. Need VIN to provide compatible part #s.

Thank you, I will try a used cluster. I have a sneaking suspicion my car was hit by lightning during a severe storm which may have resulted in my problems.
