Issue fixed see below. Any advice on obtaining Espace 1998 Maintenance Manual

OK, now you're going to say this is obvious but it wasn't at the time.

I inspected all the less obvious fuses and found the 20A (penultimate fuse) labled as "lighting rheostat" was blown. This also says in the handbook that it covers radio and rearview mirrors. So I guess with hindsight this is obvious. Replaced the fuse and the instrument panel gave me it's warm glow again.

Advice, write in your handbook against this fuse "Instrument Panel display lighting"

I kinda think that if I had access to a maintenance manual (rather than just a handbook) it may have helped me more. Does anyone know how to get a manual covering 1998 or are all post 1996 (last Hayes Espace Year) Espace owners out in the cold?

PS to scen1c. I tried to categorize the original thread as Electronic but I could't see a dropdown to do it with. How should it be done? Now I'm not dumb really
