Question no dash lights

I have no lights to the speedometer, tach, shift lever, or heater controls.
The cluster fuse is good.
? any answers ?
The cruise light comes on, the fog lights on light comes on, the high beams light comes on, seat belt light on, check guages light comes on, air bag light on, I am led to believe it is a plug or a fuse.

Check your brake lights fuse. I have seen on a few different vehicles if the dash lights go out usually the brake lights go too. GL

I will check the brake light fuse, I worked the dimmer back and forth a few hundred times. The dome light comes on. I swapped fuses with the dome light, nothing.


Funny story, the left front turn signal failed yesterday, and the hood lamp blew out.
I swapped them out with working ones, checked that all the lights worked, they did, and that night the ones I listed quit. <sigh>

Happened to me the other day. I replaced the brake light fuse(think it's a 20A) and it started working again.

behold the answer!
The driver side turn signal socket was shorted out. 15.00 at the jeep dealer, 10 min worth of work, 4 fuses replaced, robbed from other sockets, and 1 hour worth of drive and diagnostic time.
