89 YJ Dash Problems Help

Ok so the dash lights wont work or even be dimly lit, ive checked all bulbs but only a few are burned out, im sure that theyre getting power cause the gauges work fine when the ignition is turned on. So basically im stuck and wondering if the lights work just like christmas tree lights if one goes out they all stop working so yeah....

No, not like christmas tree lights.

Try rolling your dimmer switch wheel up and down a bunch to kind of re-establish contact. See if that helps . Let us know

Thanks but ive tried that ,even took it off and cleaned it up some but no luck. I think I might just run some after market lights since there's some room inside the dash.

The lights and gauges are on different circuits. Try the ACC fuse
89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.
