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!

All the gauges in the car does not work including the digital odometer, but the dash lights work along with everything else on the van. wat is the problem?

It is likely that it's the main wire connector pins on the instrument cluster circuit board. By re-flowing the solder on the 13 pins, you will probably resolve the problems. This is even more likely to be the problem if there has been erratic dash board, gauge, idiot light behaviour. Let me know if you need instructions on how to remove the instrument cluster to re-solder the 13 pins. It actually doesn't take too long.

The dome light will not go off. I am looking for the fuse which will shut it off so I don't waste the battery until I can see what ia going on tomorrow

Don't pull the fuse ... the light is probably not the only thing on the circuit. Make sure the light has not been turned on using the switch on the dimmer for your dash board lights. If this is not the case and you still want the light to be off ... remove the bulb. Simple
