no backlight in gauge cluster

  1. hello, new here. just bought my 2001 mustang about 3 weeks ago. I was driving it home in the day so I didn't notice but when it got dark I noticed :mad: there is not backlighting on the gauge cluster. like the pins are lit up but none of the numbers, (see pics) so I was talking it about today and found a random unplugged connector(see pics). so I was wondering if someone could shed light on how to fix my issue, thanks

    the brake light indicator and all of those come on when applicable.

    unplugged connector, cant figure out where it goes
  2. is that an aftermarket gauge cluster? could be that the bulbs are burnt out.....
