1995 BMW 318is Question: Instrument cluster lights out

I have owned a '95 BMW 3181s conv since new. Taken good care of it. 185,000miles. One day the instrument panel lights (orange glow)that illuminate speedo, heater, a/c and window switches by shifter went out. ABS, headlight indicator light up. Odometer lights up. Checked fuses under instrument illumination , replaced.No change.Dont thnk it is bulbs as all went out simultaneously Is there something else I am overlooking by way of hidden relay/fuse etc? Thanks.need to see dash at night! :) -

Don't forget to check the truck wire harness. All the E36 have broken wires in the harness running to the truck lid. MANY WRITE UP ABOUT IT IN BMW FORUMS. -
