No speedometer lights

Hey guys,

So the Jeep has never had working speedo lights since I've owned her and I'm finally over it.

I know that its not due to blown bulbs, fuse, or corroded wedge base sockets. I am not sure what to check next. If it helps, the gauge functions fine, and everything else in the dash works and illuminates for that matter.

This is the speedo side of the cluster should it help. Perhaps I'm missing something that I am unaware of.

I have also considered using a couple of these, they are the wedge sockets that are normally used but with their own wires. Any ideas on how I can wire these so that my dash light switch will turn them on with all the others?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Just wire it directly to the power connector lighting wire and ground. It should only take you a few minutes. If I remember right the lighting power is orange and ground is black.
