Re: dash lights not working

Yup, but is it worth your time, is the question?

I would guess that it is not a fuse problem because the other lights around it are working, anad I'd guess Honda would wire all of the cluster lights to one fuse.

Most likely a wiring issue or bad LEDs.

You'll have to pull the dash and investigate.

Re: dash lights not working

You should grab them from Honda..... General crossovers will likely say #74s will work, but they are too large. Likely # 2825 is what is used.

What year Civic ??

Maybe not, but the dealer parts catalog makes it really freekin simple to get the correct parts on the first try. (hint--replace the entire set of bulbs for the hvac panel at the same time)
