Re: What do I do if my Instrument cluster lights went...
When this hapens there is a short in the circuit board. It is an one entire piece. There are no fuses for this and there's no way every bulb would burn at same time. This is a problem with many grand cherokees and also the town & country vans. You can search the net if you'd like, but you will find my answer stands correct. I can see if there is a recall if you'd like.

Open driver side door, remove fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel and check the instrument cluster 10A fuse behind on the fuse block (third row from the top, fourth fuse position note: first two position may be empty). If fuse checks out the connector behind the instrument cluster may have worked loose. Remove steering column covers, remove bezel around the instrument panel (this is held on with push clips), remove four screws from the cluster and ease the cluster out just enough to see and correct the problem. hope this has helped.
Try to remove the instrument panel and disconnect the harness to see if doing that gets rid of the blown fuse when starting the car. If it does, then the instrument panel should be replaced with another. If the fuse still blows when starting, then there is a wire shorted to ground somewhere.

The whole dash bezel has to come off but are all the dash lights out? if so check the switch for dash lights on a 01 it is built into the turn signal handle I think check it to make sure it's not set to off for dash lights
There are two fuse boxes. One under driver compartment usually left to the steering colum. A label is stamp to identify each fuse. I would look at Park Lights and Instrument Cluster fuses. The easy way is to take a flashlight and look at all fuses. If they are all okay. Then just remove the Park Lights and Instrument Cluster fuse and reseat them. The other fuse box is under the hood and near the batter. It also has a label to identify each fuse.
The light behind myRemove the cluster bezel from the instrument panel. See Cluster Bezel in this group for the procedures. Remove the four screws that secure the instrument cluster to the instrument panel Instrument Cluster Remove/Install Pull the instrument cluster rearward to disengage the two self-docking wire harness connectors NOTE: The instrument cluster has two self-docking wire harness connectors that will be automatically aligned with, and connected to the instrument panel wire harness when the cluster is installed in the instrument panel. Remove the instrument cluster from the vehicle. Reverse the removal procedures to install. Tighten the mounting screws to 2.2 N·m (20 in. lbs.) when I turn my headlights on. All the other gauges are lit, but not the gas gauge. How do I get in there to replace the bulb and fix this? Or is it a fuse problem? I have a 1998 jeep scout Thanks
