Default dash lights quit working

just the ones that light up the dash. all my other lights work on the car, even the little led'* in the door. the turn signals, seatbelt, brights light, all those little ones work. but i just dont have any lighting on the dash! no red!

checked all my fuses, theyre all good. any ideas?

Maybe check out your headlight switch. All power for the dash illumination comes from that.
