Arrow 2008 Accord EX-L Coupe, no climate control backlighting

My climate control functions 100%. The heater and air conditioner work, defrost works, etc. Additionally, the lights on the buttons for defrost and auto -- the green and orange illumination when these functions are being used -- light up just fine. Illumination on the radio works 100%, also. The backlighting on the climate control panel is what's not working.

I have read many threads that said to start by changing the lights. I did that but nothing changed. I then bought a replacement, LKQ climate control panel, but that didn't work, either. I can't find much of anything online beyond changing the lights and the panel, and I don't know enough about Accords to know if there's a fuse dedicated to this panel. Anyone have any ideas for me? I am completely stumped.

Check passenger side under-dash Fuse No. 6 (7.5A). This is the fuse for illumination for the navigation system.

That is part of the illumination circuit from the navigation unit to the climate control units.

That was it. Fuse wasn't even there, but everything functions normally now. Thank you!
