Jeeps are prone to bad light sockets cause they dont seal them well enough,so for starters i would check those then check the wiring from the socket back as far as you can for worn wires that might arc out,also check the light switch and the ignition modual as the lights and most electricals run through it,so check for melting spots on it and or burn spots.

My dash light do not come on


FIrst, spin the brightness knob back and forth, if dirt or corrosion are causing the problem, this cleans the contact area. If that does not resolve it, check the fuses number 7 and 11 just under the dash on drivers side, it has a cover on it that comes off.

If the lights for system check do not come on when the key is turned to run without starting engine, check the fuses number 9 and 5 just under the dash on drivers side.

If this does not correct the issue, and the following- Radio glove box light, ashtray light, ABS light at startup with the other system check lights do work, the bulbs for dash illumination are probably burned out.

if the radio, ash tray and glove box light work and the other system check lights do not- the dash cluster may be seperated from the connector on the back side. or the ground wire for the cluster may not be making contact. The ground wire specific for the dash cluster lights is a black wire with orange trace stripe.

Instrument guages stopped working


Hi, this could be as simple as a blown fuse. It could also be because of failed general parts. i would first check the fuse box to make sure all the fuses are good then, i would check the wire connections on the back of each gauge to see if they may have become lose or separated form the housing.

when checking fuses did you check both sides of fuse with test light or a meter?sometimes fuse may test good on one side but not the other.you may also want to check fuses under the hood as well.

Fog lights


check fuse #7 in the fuse block inside the vehicle and fuse #25 in the fuse block under the hood...more than likely you blew one of these fuses when it sparked. as for the drivers side being inop once you replace the blown fuse if you have a test light check for voltage at the bulb connector...the light assembly itself may be bad

Guages malfunctioning


This problem maybe solved a couple ways. The first, (and cheapest) is check all your fuses. BMW's sometimes have multiple fuse boxes. In the dashboard behind the clove compartment, under the driver's side or passenger's side dash( near your knees or sides of your calfs), and in the engine compartment under the hood. Fuses are relatively cheap if you do it yourself and are available at nearly all auto parts stores and many WAL*MART'S or TARGET'S.

If you've checked all the fuses with either a fuse checker (about $5 at an auto parts store) or by pulling out and checking each fuse visually (making sure to be very careful not to touch the contacts or not getting shocked by disconnecting the positive battery cable very carefully), another problem may be in your ECU (the car's computer or brains).

If the fuses are fine, I'd take it to a dealer to have them look at the ECU, it is one of those parts that you can't really diagnose yourself with out the right software and computer connections (very expencive tools, around $500-$3,000 each) but many local mechanic shops and all BMW dealers will have these tools.

First check the fuses. If you have trouble finding the fuse boxes, look in the owner's manuals.

I hope I could help you fix the problem.
