Idiot lights came on - All of them

Anyone ever had all the idiot lights on their instrument panel light up? Started the jeep up on Sunday morning and the dash lit up like a Christmas Tree. I'm thinking it's an electrical fault since one of the lights that's on is for cruise control which I don't have. Jeep seems to run just fine.

Any insights would be helpful.

The connector at the back of the instrument panel is notorious for causing issues with the instrument cluster and usually just needs to have the contacts cleaned or adjusted. You might check that to start, but before you do, when you turn the key on to start the Jeep the instrument panel and lights go through a self check for about 3-5 seconds. Are you sure it's not just doing it's self check?

I've also heard of this when water leaks in around the windshield or frame and gets in behind the dashboard. Or, when the top has been left off in the rain.
