no dash lights 97 tj
Ok so I'm at work and I figured I would replace a bulb in my dash while on break simple enough right. All that was out was a turn signal indicator bulb. Replaced it and it works fine but now 0 dash lights. All gauges are working. Digital read out working. Everything but the dash lights what have I over looked?

Ok so it turns out all those little plastic backed twist in bulbs aren't created equal. See I removed one to see if I had any at work and I did so I put them back in. Turns out I put the new bulb in ihe ilumination socket and it had snapped a fuse. Swapped the bulbs back around and there ya have it. I'll have to go to the parts house and get the right bulb. Pass me the dunce cap I'll wear it the rest of the night.

Hahah - I think if some one caught this they could have saved you a few bucks for a fuse and the gas. :D But glad you figured it out.

Yea I've use those bulbs. From work in lots of stuff. Never would have thought the jeep wouldn't like them.
