Dashboard lights not working

2004 wrangler sport, my dashboard lights not turning on, also my other lights on dash not illuminating , signals work fine, headlights work fine, fog lights work fine & emergency lights work fine. I tried replacing the multi-function switch with no results. I've checked all fuses under hood & behind glove box as well...HELP PLZ.. Can't drive at night...

You figure it out yet? I'm having the same issue and trying to figure it out. Not being able to see my speed at night is killing me.

So mine is fried in the same spot.

Any luck finding replacement parts?

Or what the hell to search for?

I just did an led replacement. I took the bulbs out running wires from the led strip to a switch.
As for replacement parts it's cl or dealer. Hard to find them on cl and pricey at dealer.
Just look for a new cluster or replace the bulbs with leds and run to a switch.

I am just going to replace the guage cluster. Found one on ebay for 75.00 with the same mileage.

The dealer wanted 950!!! LOL um yea no thanks!

They have a few others on there for 150-195. Some will program the mileage for you.
