Gauges blowing fuse?
Hey my dad has a 94 yj 4.0 and it keeps blowing a fuse for the gauges. Everything on the instrument cluster goes out. Anyone have any ideas?

do the exterior marker lights go out at the same time?

Nope just gauges

could be the dimmer switch or you have a short/corrosion behind the dash

I don't think it's the dimmer. All the needles for the gauges go dead too. Prob a short from corrosion. I think his windshield was leaking for a bit. Thanks for the input. I'll have him check it out ( and by that I mean I'm gonna have to check it out)

I had the same issue on my '94. I found the wire harness plug going to the dash gauges was shorting out and had green corrosion all over. I cleaned the plug up with some electrical cleaner and a tooth brush. then put a bit of electric grease in there. Not an issue since.
