Looks can be deceiving. Try swapping out the dash fuse with a new fuse.

Only 3 things I can think of to cause this:

1. Blown fuse
2. Blown bulbs
3. Shorted/open wire

Check fuses 3 and 7 in the dash panel.
Check maxi fuse 8 in the distribution box under the hood.
Check ground G103 under the hood on the driver side inner fender about halfway back.
