What fuse is for the interior ambiance door/shift orange lights?

I noticed the other night my interior ambiance lights (orange lights along the doors, ash tray and shift knob light) weren't lit. The orange lights for the front/rear map lights, EDC buttons, iDrive controller menu button all light up though as does the radio/HVAC orange backlights. I searched and only found some issues with the Bimmian LED's, however, mine are 100% stock. I checked the following fuses:

61, 77, 62, 07

Everything else seems fully functional, any ideas on fuse number?

headlights are on and it's dark out when they're not coming on.

I now have the same issue. Lights on ambient door, steering wheel, shift knob and window switches don't come on. Anyone else with ideas?

I should have followed up on this... I switched to a lit ZHP knob, the wires were bunched up at the top of the knob and eventually shorted out over time as the insulation became torn from abrasion. The interior lighting circuit is not externally fused, but rather is controlled by an electrical module. That module "fries" itself after 5 circuit shorts. This didn't take long in my case.

I acted dumb and the dealer gave me a new OEM shift knob, replaced the module and recoded, took several hours. I was lucky.
