Half of instrument lights went out at once?
First, I wanted everyone to know that I searched the forum for a while and couldnt find an instance of this...
I was driving down the road in my ZJ (1996) last night when the left side instrument lights all went out. The instruments all work as they should, but there is no illumnation.
Thinking about this analytically, I can't understand what happened. Either:
1) I blew every bulb on that side at once time. Highly unlikely, I would think.
2) I have a fuse or relay to check. I was under the impression however, that 1 fuse was responsible for the entire instrument panel illumination...why would half work and half not if the fuse was blown?
3) on a side note, I suspect my battery and cables need replacing, and will do that this weekend. any chance that issue could be a cause?
Thanks in advance. I bought this baby with a bunch of miles, and want to help her live a long life.
