I have had similar problems years ago with the dash illumination on my old 205 XRD.
It was a case of opening up dash and cleaning up connections / circuit membrane, as years of dust and condensation meant a dirty connector somewhere. But to trace it you need to be able to follow circuit diagrams and use a multimeter. Do you have the Haynes manual?
End of the day, you need either to spend an afternoon with the dash apart (205 is much easier than some modern cars, as I remember top bit comes off seperate to bottom section?) OR Pay £50 + to an autoelectrician.

Check simple things like new bulb actually works when 12v applied and connections to bulb holder are fine first.
Clock Lighting normally grouped together with dash lighting for fuses.
