No dash lights

Hey guys. New to this forum. I've had my yj for a little over a year. The instrument panel lights have never worked. No bad fuses. I'm wondering if this is common? Any help would be great! Thanks.

Electrical issues are common more because they were not maintained. Take a look at the connectors and the board for the cluster for any corrosion. Also the dimmer switch. Go through all the connectors and clean them usp with contact cleaner/alcohol and seal them with dielectric grease.

I'm gonna need the luck. The whole thing is a po hack. Might just hammer out the jeep stamps in the fenders and stamp in Po Hack Wrangler.

Thanks! Hoping to avoid strapping a Mag Lite to the arm rest.

If you have a meter the electrical is easy on a Jeep. You can get the help to figure things out here by searching the forum and asking for help.
