Dash Lighting?

On my 2009 Cobalt I lost the speakers in the front doors which also takes out the beeping turn signal sound.

My question is does this also takeout the dash cluster lighting...I turn the dash lighting control up and down but do not see any lighting what so ever...

Any and all replies,experiences and suggestion appreciated

Thanks

Check your tail lights to see if they work, if your taill lights don't work and your cluster lighting doesn't work, that means you blew the fuse. Normally caused my license plate bulb connector corrosion.

It will be a 15 amp blue fuse in the underhood fuse block, pretty much in the middle of the block.

Losing cluster lighting is the way GM tells you that you have lost your rear tail lights. It is a built in safety feature, same as losing cruise when you lose your brake lights or hyperflashing when you lose a blinker filament. These are all safety feature inherant to a GM. Pretty neat if you ask me. These are all listed in your owners manual. There are more which I forget. An other I just remembered is if you have no OBDII communication your lighter won't work.
