dashboard lights dont work!?

I was installing some lights on mt windshield and when I was done my dashboard lights dont work anymore!

The only thing that i can think of that I touched to mess anything up was the ground screw thats to the left of the brake pedal but it looks like its all making the connection

what els should I check?

Ok, this sounds like a stupid question, but if you turn on the switch for the new lights, do your dash lights come on?

Did you splice into any of the wires behind the dash?

How, exactly did you wire in the new lights? Did you use a solenoid? What are you using for power? How did you wire the switch?

Behind Glove box and under the hood? I know sounds silly but some times those are the Obvious ones we miss.

Fuses, Unlimted posts too quick.

the new lights run seperatly from everything els and the only part that I touched for the dash is the ground near the brake but I put it back to how it was when I found it.....

the lights run off the battery and I used the Harnest it came with

The previous owner of my jeep told me he had the exact same problem you are experiencing, only sporadically. He fixed this by pulling the instrument cluster and tweaking every connection with a screw driver. It turned out in this case that it was simply bad connections.
Hope that helps!
