Ok here is what I think I need to fix first. When I hook up the battery the dash lights come on. All of them. Then if I roll the dimmer up like i am turning on the dome light, the dash light do not change and my parking lights do. They go up and down with the dimmer.

Hey Rub. THANK YOU for the pics. I really appreciate the help. Here are a couple of pics I took this weekend of the fuse box and the junction behind it. This is the inside of the firewall. All my plugs/connectors and wires are looking fine. I don't see any cut wires, no splices, no electrical tape or anything that would leave me to think that this has been butchered up for no reason. The only thing I can figure is that the harness that was put in the engine compartment is not right or not for the right year YJ.
Something that was brought up in an earlier link posted here is daytime running lamps. I am pretty sure that and 87 jeep did not have them,BUT if this harness is not for an 87 and does have a hook up for DRL???? What would it look like and where would it be found?
Like I said I think that there is a wire crossed some where and I would not know it without a diagram for this junction at the firewall. Everything else looks like its where it is supposed to be.
Thank you again for all the help. I hope I can repay the favor someday.

It is the back side of the fuse box and the inside face of the plug for the fire wall. There are 2 screws that mount the fuse box to the fire wall. Then there is a clip at each screw location that help hold it in. Its a pain. I had to pull the dash and the light switch to get a extended screwdriver to it

Ok So I got a copy of this fuse panel for an 88 YJ. Its really close to what I have.
Here is what I found
#1 on with Ing. power left side
#2 ALWAYS ON POWER BOTH SIDES
#3 ALWAYS ON POWER BOTH SIDES
#4 always on power right side
#5 On with Ing. Power left side
#6 Always on power left side
#7 Didn't check. Whole 'nother issue for later
#8 Always on power right side
#9 Always on power right side
#10 On with Ing. power right side

Why would I have power on both sides or 2 & 3??

With a fuse in you should have power on both sides. Do you mean with the fuse removed?

Yes, When I pulled the fuse out to see which side is supplying power. On those 2 it has power to both sides. If I knew which side is the right side I could trace the other side back to whatever is giving it
power. I can't believe that its not blowing fuses all the time.
Actually #3 does blow every time I drive it around the block.

You need to hook up the meter to each of the fuses that have power in the load side. I don't have schematics handy to tell you what side that is but I can link it if you need it tomorrow. One by one pull the fuses in the fuse panel and the pdc and see which circuit is back feeding and I can tell you when you find out where to go from there when you figure that out.
