1992 si vtec prelude - speedo wont light up during the day

hey there, this is my first thread so bear with me,

i own a 1991 (1992) prelude si vtec.
i dont know if i was imagining it but when i bought it i swear the rev counter and speedo use to light up during the day the same as the rest of the dash does (temperature and fuel)
but during the past couple of months the speedo and rev counter havnt been lighting up unless i turn on the headlights, when i do this the speedo and rev counter backlight does come on.

so my question is "my dash backlight doesnt come on during the day, how do i fix this?"

any help is much appreciated
