There should be an adjustable dial for the brightness somewhere around the steering wheel dash's probably turned way down and just needs to be set to the preffered brightness.

I have a 87 jeep comanche. auto. transfered to 4x4. my dash light wont work, i believe its a dead short because i raised the fuse number and it still blew. my question is, were would be the most likel

When say "dash light" I'm assuming you mean the nighttime illumination for instruments like the speedometer for example. If your truck has a stand-alone digital clock (not part of the radio) that has a feed wire from the instrument panel lights for it to dim at night, otherwise it'd be too bright. That could be a source of a short. The radio also makes use of the dash illumination as well, making the digital display darken at night and lighting the radio's controls and face plate at night, another source of a short in this circuit. Do not ever increase fuse ratings when replacing a fuse, that defeats the safety purpose of the proper fuse being able to blow, opening the circuit which prevents wires overheating and potentially catching fire. You don't want to go there. If you have recently installed another radio the wiring may be wrong. This happened a LOT on Pontiac Firebird's and TransAm's. People often wrongly assumed all black wires are ground and ended up grounding the dash illumination input. This blew the dash light fuse and made the retracting headlight doors stay up.

Need to know engine size for 87 four door chrysler labaron

Check the VIN number of your vehicle (Little metal tag on the dashboard in the bottom corner of the windshield on the drivers side). The 8th digit from the left is your engine code. i.e. xxxxxxxExxxxx

If it is E, you have a 2.2L Turbo
If it is D, you have a 2.2L non-Turbo
If it is K, you have a 2.5L non-Turbo

1987 lebaron digital dash all lights are off

This was a fairly common problem with the early digital dashes and I believe the problem was with a circuit board inside the dash itself. A poor connection or crack in the circuit board would cause a loss of all the digital readouts and often the problem would come and go at random. There are some companies that repair these and other digital readout dashes so I would do an online search and contact a repair facility that specializes in this. I've never found anything that can be done to the outside of the dash [connections, etc] that would help the problem. Good luck, hope this helps!

My digital speedometer went out

If the fuses are still good, most likely will need a new cluster or computer which both will be hard to come by on something that old.
