Default Instrument cluster illumination problem

Cluster stopped lighting up last night in the jack in the box drive through. everything else works, the fuse is good and when i tried to install a different headlight switch it started smoking . . . please help, need to see my gauges even if its a band-aid fix until i get the TII on the road. (s4 n/a)

Check the wiring harness going to the headlight switch. If you burned up a 2nd headlight switch there may be a problem with the harness.

See if you can trace the burning wire back.. That might lead you directly to the problem.
