Not being a smart ***, but did you check the bulbs and fuses? I replaced all of my dash lights w/ some LEDs I got off of eBay recently. Costs about $10 to do them all.

Do the LED's dim with the dimmer? I still have the regular dash lights and they are way too bright when out in the desert.

Had to run out to the Jeep to check, but yes the lighting can be reduced w/ the dimmer switch..........they are LEDs, so they are a good bit brighter than stock ones. Makes it look newer in my opinion.

Great, thanks. My next project. (If nothing breaks this weekend!)

Really easy swap. Takes a phillips head screwdriver and about 10 minutes. Just pop the guages out and swap the bulbs. They will go in 2 ways, but will only come on if inserted the correct way. Easy fix would be put one in and turn on your lights. If it doesn't light up, then just pull it out and rotate it.

I do believe that there are 10 including the tach and speedo. I had exactly enough in the kit to replace all of them.
