Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee
OK I too have a dash light problem. Installed a new switch from Jeep problem solved for 3 days. Then dash lights out again. Headlights, running lights and brake lights are fine. Turning signals flash on instrument cluster and ODO and all other gauges work.. Put another fuse in then removed the radio, popped another fuse. removed heater control, fog light/rear wiper/defroster panel then the lights stayed on the dash. Plugged each one in one at a time trying to isolate the problem. Now everything works... For how long I do not know. The last time the lights went out I was turning left and had just let off the brake if that helps. Can't seem to find a rhyme or reason. Yet
From your description it would appear you have an intermittent short to ground on the dash light power circuit.
It may be as simple as wire insulation being cut on a sharp metal edge, or the supply being shorted by a loose metallic object (such as a nut or washer) in a connected assembly.
Check any external wiring for damage - such as connection to foglights etc.
There is no easy fix here -just persistence.
