Exclamation Gauge cluster light and speedo

How do I fix the Gauge cluster light and the speedometer stopped working. For the latter does anyone have a step by step picture manual showing how to do it? And also no lights work on the inside of my vehicle. HELP!!!!

The gauge cluster lights are controlled by a rheostat. Twist the left hand knob on the instruments. The lights may come back on. If not either the bulbs died, or the rheostat needs to be jumpered. You'll have to pull the instrument cluster either way.

As for the speedo. The cable probably broke. While you have the cluster out to troubleshoot the light problem. You'll have to disconnect the speedo cable from the speedo head and from the transmission and replace it.
