instrument panel failure - `93 wrangler

the instrument panel (gauges and dummy lights) have all of a sudden stopped working in my 1993 Jeep Wrangler. i've checked fuses, relays and even pulled the dash looking for loose connections - nothing. anybody got any ideas?

thnx - mike

does the instrument panel itself have a ground? if so, can i assume it, too, is hidden under the dash. as for the "roller switch", not even sure what that is.

thanks
