There's a bunch of "lights in the dash". We need a better description of the problem if we're going to help......

What you've described as being on are most of the lights in the dash. I'm trying to help but you have to be willing to put in at least enough effort to make up a list of all the lights that are working and ALL the lights that aren't. Details make a big difference in the quality of advice we're able to provide.

Specifically what is working and what isn't? We're they working and stopped or have they never worked since you got the car? All of these things are helpful for us.

Hmmm... I'm assuming you did make sure the dash light brightness dial is turned up, correct?

Well if it has power, then you've had the cluster out. Did you replace the bulbs?

Can you try taking those pictures again? I have zero idea what lights are on on your dash.

All the gauge lights are not illuminating, A/C , heater buttons (only in green not orange) the lighter
Or the back trunk not turning on.
