It could be the bulb or it could be the instrument cluster. Either way the dashboard would need to be removed to replace either.
Would be a good idea to get the problem diagnosed before you start taking things apart.

If they are all out it is an electrical issue which is real hard to detect. If only one light is out it's a bulb.

Yes there are fuses. Check your owners manual for fuse box location & diagram of what's what. If that doesn't correct the issue, then it could be a bulb which would require disassembling the dash & removing the cluster.

I would start with checking fuse 13 in the fuse block on the left side of the dash. If it is good, then check for power going into the cluster. There are many bulbs in the cluster. It is possible they burnt out. If that is the case, they are serviceable separately, but you will probably have to pull a bulb out to match it up so you get the correct bulb.

Hi Jeff, On your 1999 Galant: First make sure your dimmer switch is not on low. Next in your owner's manual there should be a description for the instrument cluster / instrument panel. Different manufacturers use different terms. Your fuses are located there. Test those first. Good luck.
