There are lots of lights that are supposed to come on.... Almost every one of the twelve locations come on.

Can you get them to come on in other ways? Try pressing down the parking brake. Does the brake light come on? Try turning off the traction control. Does the "traction off" light come on? Try pulling the airbag fuse. Do you get a light for that?

FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM A GENIUS!!!!!

actually just a huge coincidence...ok as you may know, i have my car interior completely apart right now. i had just taken off the center console and was gonna try to figure out why the lights on my shifter that tell me what gear i am in didnt work. i tested the bulb and it was fine. i tested the power source, it had its ground, but the power was nothing. i tapped into that wire from another remote turn on, and all of a sudden my dash came to LIFE!!! i screamed in amazment. something is messed up bad inside my dash, but im not gonna mess with it, so by hooking up a remote power supply to the light in my shifter, it gave way to all my DASH lights??? weird huh...i am thrilled though, i can actually tell when my car is going bad now! horray, just thought id share

That really sounds like a blown fuse.

OK, can you find fuse No. 1D in the instrument panel fuse block (15 amps)?

Other than that, if your concearned about the inflatable restraint what you do is : Put the car in Drive, Set the E- brake, open the hood, and with a 10lbs sledge hit that little square box besde the hood latch assembly, if the air bags go off, you know they work..or did.....
WARNING: DO NOT DO WHAT I JUST SAID! IM JOKING!
Anyways, the dash would be a PITA to tear apart, probally not as bad as a Water pump, but still....
WOW i kill my self sometimes!
As for the missing fuse, someone probally pulled it to replace another more important fuse on the block.
