No dash lights,guages,radio....

Okay. We just picked up a 89 jeep. It has an issue though. The Guages on the dash are not working at all, except the speedo is working. No dash lights, no wipers and no turn signals or wipers. The hazards do work though. Checked the fuses and they appear to be good. Where should i start?

That's a whole bunch of unrelated items to have not working.

The gauge package, the right of the steering wheel (from the driver's perspective) has a circuit board which is prone to failure. Primarily due to water getting behind the dash. This may be your issue with some of your gauges.

Since your hazards work, you may simply have a bunch of bad bulbs in your dash that need changing.

One last gauge you haven't mentioned - the tach. Is that working?
