    you probably have a bad/burnt resistor , it's a common problem if you search the forum. You have to remove the whole overhead console, look for the burnt resistor ( i think it's # 510, or something like that) unsolder and resolder it back and it should work.

    There are members here that fix it for a small fee, ask Jerez he fixed mine
