Default Fuel and Engine Temp Lights Out

I have a 2001 Impreza RS and turned it on this morning and my fuel gauge and engine temp illumination were out (not lighting up, gauges seem to work). Doesn't look like they're on their own fuse in the manual, anyone know what would cause that and where the light to replace is?

Check your ground wires.

are those two gauges right next to each other? maybe they share the same light source? could that be out? is it a bulb? EL panel? LED? Im not familiar with the lighting in the gauge cluster.

yep, both are next to each other, but it's weird because the illumination behind me speed and tach are fine... ground wires prob aren't a bad idea to take a look at.

well your speedo and tach probably have their own light source. id guess there is a bulb or EL panel behind each gauge (counting the gas/temp and one gauge) so if one fails, the other two will still work. not xmas tree lights in there. I would be that the entire gauge cluster shares a common ground and all the gauges would be out if a ground were the problem. Its not a fuse, that is for sure. you should post this question in the lighting and interior forums.. probably get a correct answer real quick. if you find out, id be curious to know what it was. good luck.
