Default 1996 bonneville ssei dash lights not working

Hello all, I am on this post to help my boy with his car.
I was wondering what would cause the dashboard lights to suddenly stop working.

Thread moved to proper area for better visibility.

Have you checked you fuses? There is also a ground bus along the lower front door frame on both sides. Here'* a write up on how to clean them. https://www.gmforum.com/showthread.php?t=278980

Welcome to GM Forum!

Did you lose only some of your dashboard lights, or all of them? Are there any other interior lights out?
