Just a heads up... I pulled the dash and checked all the connections, nothing seems loose or shorted. I located two grounds on the driver side behind the speaker, those were fine. I pulled each and every fuse from behind the glove box, all are fine. I pulled all the fuses under the hood, all are fine. I checked the grounds at the tail lamps, all are fine. I have read about others adding another ground wire from the frame to the negative battery terminal, could this help?
The dealer told me since I put aftermarket lights on, they won't touch it without me paying. Seems odd that all of the lights I installed are on their own relays/fuses/grounds, yet those could be causing an issue...? They didn't have an answer for the dash not lighting up, just wanted $220 to see if they could find a ground short. I'm going in on Friday to speak with the assistant manager who I bought the Jeep from to see if he'll attempt to make it right and at least order a new switch to see if that's whats causing the issue. In the mean time, any other suggestions are welcome
