There is a test you can run to find out if its your dash panel or computer.

Hold the Trip reset button in while turning the ignition switch on(dont need to start it) it will run a self test mode going through every gauge and light on your panel...

Hi, there is a connector behind the dash that likes to get dirty and create this problem. The connector is behind the instrument cluster. Clean it really well, put some dielectric grease on the connections and re-install. There happens to be a TSB (Tech Service Bulletin) by Chrysler on this problem.

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.

1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport Fuse Needed?


Sometimes there are relays under the hood. There is usually a diagram posted underneath the door when you tak it off. The turn signal is usually just a fuse, which may be in your glove box(has a diagram under the door), under the driver or passenger side dash. Do you still have the manual for the vehicle?

1994 Jeep cherokee am/fm radio backlight lamp is out and AC/Heat dash lamp is out


There is a tiny little peanut shaped light bulb inside the radio that provides the light for the dial, it is replaceable, you will need to remove the radio, then pull the top cover off the radio chassis, the bulb is under the cover.

1989 Jeep Cherokee - Electrical Problem - horn, brake lights, blinkers, radio/cd...


I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.

Radio works but the clock/channel does not light up.


It sounds like the radio is defective, but check the fuses that power it 1st, if they are all ok then you can get a used working radio on Ebay, have bought them there myself with no problems, cost was reasonable.
