my first jeep

I just bought my first jeep. A 94 wrangler I've loved these vehicles since I was a kid. Now I'm looking for a mentor type person that wouldn't mind having there brains picked. Like for one none of the gauge lights work. I'm open to any and all advice thank you

I know that when i got mine i had no clue that there was a little wheel next to the light switch that could be adjusted. after two days of having no interiour lights a friend of mine moved the wheel and my lights came on. yeah, i was kinda embarassed, but the lights are on.

If you don't stand behind the troops then try standing in front of them.

I'm a new TJ owner but I've had this and might be able to help.

Be specific - no interior lights ...ever ?
There are 2 high on my hardtop and 2 courtesy lights (at your knees).
OK my courtesy lights were busted ($5 junkyard fixed later)
but I eventually realized . .
I open the doors - no interior lights
I twist the headlight-on knob - I get interior lights.
Since the wiring and bulbs obviously work - Hmmm
Yup there's a "control" for that. (Wranglers wouldn't want lights on just because there are no doors mounted)
The "control" for this is a fuse.
Not the fuses under the hood near the battery, No, the OTHER fuses - behind the glove box door (it pops off real easy, strap off, open wide, whoops it's off).
Sure enough, an empty slot means no door sensors. It's previous owner had them off on purpose.

Now if you still get nothing, no roof, no knees, even with twisting the headlight knob, then I got nothin' for ya.

FYI, you'll get no interior lights from the tailgate being open without a custom fix. I'll be doing mine soon. Then no more running around to open a side door just so I can see where to put the groceries in the tailgate.

What ? I'm the only person who buys groceries after dark ?
