SOURCE: No headlights, or dash lights.
check the ground cable at the battery , youll see a break in the ground wire at the battery box, check to make sure the bolt is tight and not corroded (the break is the ground for most of the lighting )

my jeep grand cherokee has had this same problem, as have many i've seen on the road. the tail light socket has contacts that provide the electrical connection. sometimes the contacts get weak and do not make good contact causing lights not to work. try removing the socket and pulling contacts up a little or also putting a small piece of aluminum foil around the contact will work.

The black wire in the harness is the ground circuit. The actual ground connection is around the back seat.
If you think the ground circuit is open you can splice into the wire and ground it near one of the tail lamps.
