Neutral/reverse/temp lights not coming on.

I have recently been dealing with my 2001 sportsman 500 overheating. And now I am realizing that my dash lights for neutral,reverse, and my temp light are not coming on. What would be a common cause if that? Thanks!

The neutral and reverse and acc. outlet share a common ground , but the temp light gets its ground from the temp sensor .
If the acc plug has power then the grounds are ok for the neutral and reverse ind. lights and I would check the bulbs first .
