Mine is the same way.... can't turn on dome lights or dim the dash lights, but everything else works fine.
I found a very small wire in the unit that broke. It's damned near impossible to get to the wire enought to splice or even solder it.
I just got a couple of those small "Tap Lights" and mounted them to the roof.
A used switch (w/fogs) on eBay is around $90. The tap lights were 3 for $10.

Thanks for the responses guys
I think I'll follow mrcarcrazy's advice here and just live with it for now. I'd rather take that $100 and use it to drop in a CB!

It is the multi function switch. I had to replace mine a couple days ago... My fog lights stayed on... my dimmer did not work... and i could not turn on my interier lights..
It is very easy to replace... there is a how-to on here to do it.. i seen it 2 days ago, but if u want a hand let me know and i can walk u through it... U will need tork bits if u dont already have them...
It had costed me 125.00 for the switch... other people have payed 90.00 depending where u live...

multifunction switch failure I do believe. most people have the foglight issues associated with this switch.
I'm not 100% that this is the cause of your woes, but if it is, I'd live with it, until another function of the multifunction switch stalk fails.

|drivebytruckerz||If I'm not mistaken.. this technology has been basically the same since the CJ. I think the knob assembly is relatively cheap and easy to find. I replaced one once in an 80 CJ and it was easy. Maybe it's just defective, or burned out, but someone else might have a better answer.|

Dimmer/Interior light switch not functional
I've tried searching for this and I'm coming up with zero.
In my 2004 TJ, the dimmer and interior light switch are completely nonfunctional; the rest of the indicator stalk works fine. Interior lights work fine--they come on when the door is opened or ignition is turned off (just not when the switch is used).
I don't know where to begin to troubleshoot this, any tips?
