gauges dont work

98 zj limited ......so i pulled my whole dash apart and checked every connection. i even checked the main logic board behind the gauges and theres no loose or coroded connections. i checked my bcm connection theres nothing bad there. my gauges just wont work. they used to come off and on now they just dont come on at all. i have power to my dash my abs light stays on. what could this be? new bcm? or what??

My guess would have to be the ignition switch if the jeep runs fine otherwise .

just a thought, this happened to my buddys jeep. Check the battery cables, terminals. His was kinda corroded..didnt look like it was even anything to think about.I tapped them and twisted them a hair and everything worked?

I was having a problem with my batt terminal being loose at the same time this starting happening. Where as I always had to twist the terminal for connection and I always had no power. But I now have a new battery and terminals and it still won't work. Could it have fried something from resetting all the time

I also do not get a chime when I turn my key to on. I do not hear those 3 tones and none of my dash lights appear before I turn my key to start so ignition makes some sense
