Headlights and gauges PROBLEM
Ok so I have an 89 yj with new gauges and dash, today I noticed that when ever I turn my headlights on my gauges stop working but with headlights off all gauges functional normally. I'm sure something some were is out miss conected but this has never happened before.

So I ask if there's any electrical geniuses out there that can lend me a brain so I dont have to drive at night with out wearing a head lamp

check the daytime running lights, fuses, and if you have aux lights check for grounding and added fuses.
also check the headlight switch itself to make sure its all good, I had a weird issue with a ground on mine and for some reason the dash lights could trigger the rear wiper when the ground was disconnected.
