Dash lights and parking lights not working
So I got in my jeep tonight after work and went to turn on the driving lights and they turned on but the dash lights wouldn't come on and my parking lights weren't working as well. But when I wiggled the switch that controlled the lights my dash lights would flicker a bit. And if I pulled the switch in between the setting on it the dash lights will come on. Anybody have any idea what's going on?
Thanks in advance, Dylan

Sounds like your switch is going out.

Pop off your dash bezel and make sure the wire harness is still connected fully and not melted.

I hadn't got around to checking the switch yet but today as I was driving I went to hit the blinkers and they flashed once and then went completely dead and wouldn't work at all.

Fuses, relays...

Go on a trip down a washboard road?

Might be the steering column signal switch, just odd that it got the head lights working by ...wait a minute...the darn light switch is on the signal arm isn't it. This is what I get bouncing between my Dodge Truck forum and here.

Guessing on the switch going out still stands, just the wrong location.

No the lights on mine is a pull knob on the kick panel and the signal arm is by itself.

Finally!! I figured out what was wrong. I had plugs for a trailer on my trailer hitch and recently I went offroading and ended up tearing the wires and they shorted out and blew the fuses for my blinkers and dash/parking lights. Thanks for the help friends.
