Default cluster no lights

Hi guys. Sorry its late and i have work early morning. I just want some ideas what to do after work tomorrow and try it.
So i decided to take her out after 3 weeks not driving and did a few miles drove around the lake just before the sunset set and while driving back home i noticed that my RPM and MPH lights are not on. Messed around the lights and turned off and on, highbeam on off nothing work. maybe the deemer, NADA.
Got home did the test 2.0 and all the lights are working just the 2 Big circle MPH and RPM no lights.
Few Days ago i switched my radio and climate control from my 2004 e46 325ci because my m3 radio on off knob is hard to press. i mean i only messed with the radio. did i pulledsomething is it connected.
OH! and also my radio lights doesnt work and the climate control lights no lights. are they all connected? i turned on my 325ci and all the lights are working even the radio and climate control.
Maybe the FUSE? what number is it, 10?
theres also a fuse on the radio maybe check that too?
I read that the rear plate # light turns on so does the cluster?
Its bugging me already

Default Re: cluster no lights

I would say most likely something not wired properly back together, but I have not dealt with electricals like this. Did you do all the electrical/wiring work with negative battery terminal disconnected?

Per the fuse diagram here, cluster is fuses 10, 34, 43, radio are 7, 41, light module are 9, 32. Check continuity on those or simply visually inspect.
