I've been searching online for this information and can't find it, hopefully someone here will be able to help me out.
The cover over the warning lights on my 1991 Wrangler disappeared a long time ago. Now I have a light coming on and I don't know what it is. I know that it's NOT either blinker, the high beam light or the upshift light - those I recognize. I'm a little worried that it might be the "check engine" light. Can anyone let me know what the various lights are in the grid? I'll go get a sharpie and mark them for next time.
The CEL will be lit when you have the key in the position right before starting. I believe that it is the first one on the left in the bottom row. Seat blet light should also be lit (I think? I know 2 lights come on...), and if you have ABS, that light should also come on.
@myrtle150 - Thanks for the link, but that diagram does not match what I have. My dash has two rows of six lights each and some of lights that I know don't match up to what the diagram shows.
@NewDriver59 - The only light that comes on when I put the key in is the shift light.
Some parts on this jeep are not the original parts from 1991. I bought it in 2002, I think I'm the 3rd or 4th owner. I had to go to the local Jeep dealer to get some part (PCV valve I think) and we had to spend some time looking through their diagrams to find out what model year part I needed because the 91 version didn't fit. I have no idea what else could have been modified or replaced, so maybe this is not the 1991 dashboard. One parts dealer told me I have the "older style" dashboard, whatever that means.
Here are the lights I have - hopefully someone can help me fill in the blanks.
Top row, left to right:
1 - Left turn signal indicator
2 - high beams
3 - ? - comes on while starting then goes off
4 - empty socket
5 - ?
6 - right turn signal indicator
1 - shift light - comes on for a few seconds after starting and when RPMs are too high
2 - ? - this one is on sometimes while driving, just started doing that recently
3 - empty socket
4 - empty socket
5 - ? - this came on last night on the way home, but did not today on the way to work.
6 - empty socket
For the sake of posterity, here's what I now know about the dash lights. I found out my neighbor has a 1990 that has the same style dash lights and compared his. By the way, the Wrangler is for sale as I bought a new Grand Cherokee. Email or PM me if you're interested.
Dashboard lights, in order from left to right:
1 - left blinker
2 - high beam indicator
3 - brake light
4 - seatbelt warning light
5 - still not sure
6 - right blinker
7 - upshift light
8 - check engine
9 - empty hole
10 - empty hole
11 - emission warning
12 - maintenance required (trips at a certain mileage, 80k I think, to remind you to replace the O2 sensor).
My problem turned out to be the oxygen sensor, which tripped the check engine light and also the emissions light because it had gone faulty.
