Dash board lights don't turn on wat could be the problem
get ready to work upside down, first get an electrical diagram of your dashboard, find the power wire, get a paperclip and uncurl it, stick it inbetween the power wire and its holder (so the paperclip touches the copper of the wire). next turn the key to the on position, and turn on the lights. (make sure you do this briefly because it will drain your battery) then get a DVOM or a test light, ground them, and see if your dashboard lights are getting power by sticking the lead onto the paperclip. if it is then there is something wrong with the lights themselves. if not, check to see if your power wire is broken, chaffing, shorting, anything wierd. if its not broken then bring to the dealership. if it is broken then replace the wire.
i do not own a jeep so i cannot tell you exactly how to take apart the dashboard (if the lights are bad) but if you dissasemble it from bottom to top slowly and carefully you should be able to access the lights.
Hope this helps!
