Dash Lights/Tail Lights not working

Hello all,

I recently purchased some tube fenders for my 1998 TJ and was wanting to keep it street legal, so I also purchased GenRight LED Stealth Marker & Blinker Light Kit. Well, I got it all installed and wired up only to realize that night once it got dark that my dash lights (instrument cluster, A/C and heater control area) as well as my tail lights were not working. However, the turn signals, brake light, and all other lights except the backlights work on the cluster. My headlights work as well as my cabin lights.

I am extremely baffled at what is wrong but am really needing help seeing as I cannot really drive at night as of now with no tail lights.

Going to call GenRight first thing in the morning and see if they can help.

But for the time being, any suggestions/ideas would be much appreciated.

- Brandon

Did you check fuses? Seems odd dash lights are not working. Maybe a short happened during install in which case fixing a fuse could fix it. I have improcar ones or something like that. The wiring directions were dead wrong blew a fuse and I hooked them up by trial and error. If you find a blown fuse fix it see if it happens again. If so I bet they are wired wrong. I'll go find my review and post it here incase it helps I wrote my wiring in it. Don't know if it will match yours or not. Mine is the 3 star review. It wouldn't let my cut and paste it with my phone. IPCW LEDT-407CS Platinum Smoke LED Tail Lamp - Pair http://amzn.com/B000NZRFKA

Not to assume anything but did you check all your fuses ,

(glove box panel # 10 is for instrument cluster and # 1 is for parkers)

Problem solved. Ended up being the #1 fuse in the glove box. Had looked at it earlier but did not look at it well enough apparently to notice it was blown. Thanks everyone.
