clock+lighting?

ok so i have an 89 yj and the clock doesn't work on the inside. does anyone know how to fix it? and i was also wondering what kind of lighting people were using for the inside of the car. all i'm using right now is a head lamp. suggestions would be great! thanks.

I've often wondered about that too...

I don't have a clock in my 93

I keep a wind up power flashlight to the left of my drivers seat (it never rolls) and a led visor clip light that I can get batteries for from my local dollar store.
My foot light, in the pedal area is pretty bright but dosen't illuminate the center hump or ashtray area -
I highly reccomend one of those bendable led cig lighter lights, but I always have either the GPS or compass/temp guage plugged in there.....

If you have a hardtop (I'm running a soft top this winter by choice; then you could get those led button lights - they attach with two sided tape or velcro, run on AA's and 3 for 10 bucks from your local CVS store.

First: check the clock fuse.

If that's okay:

Pull the gauge cluster. You'll find a plastic-like circuit board that holds all of the circuits to the various gauges. First, try cleaning everything off and tightening everything down. Then, if unsuccessful, take a good look at the circuit board and look for a short going to the clock. It'll be pretty obvious if there is one - that was my problem.

Oh, if the board is fried - you can get one through the dealer, or through specialty jeep supply stores (I forget the name of the one I used, but it was in Alabama...not that it helps, sorry).

Be prepared through - they cost about 75 bucks. It's probably not worth the clock unless you're like me and it just bugs the crap out of you.

The easiest way to fix the clock problem is to take the jeep out wheeling and break something then you wont worry about the clock anymore. as for the interior light you can get a light that attatches to your roll bar from 4wd.com or quadratec.com.

Yeah, sound bars come with lights that work pretty well. I've also seen rigs with DYI lights that look pretty good. You can even hide the wiring in the roll-bar if you want.

i've got 2 in my TJ and one for sale at home

Anyhow you fan find one of those long neon lights and mount it on the roll bar right right in the middle.. i assume you should still have the wires for the stock light even if you dont have a sound bar but double check me on that..

Those come in all colors (including white) and give out tons of light and are long so they run along the roll bar pipes perfectly.
