Interior And Dashboard Lights Problem Fault

Hi i've just bought a BMW 318i. There are a few problems with it which i am going to get fixed at a repair shop. But my lights on the inside of the car have totaly gone. This includes the lights behind the climate control and speedo dials. Also things like the lights on the electic windows.

I have checked all my fuses and they are all fine. Ive been reading through the forums on Bimmerfest and the "light cluster" is mentioned alot.

Can any one give me a idea into whats causing this problem so its not another thing on my bill when i take it to be fixed

Welcome to the fest buddy

Have you tried using the tiny brightness dial beside the steering wheel to make sure it is just not turned right down?
