Electrical issue or just not enough coffee??

95, YJ 4.0,

I am trying to diagnose an issue with the headlights and the turnsignal, when i turn the key on, both turnsignal lights on the dash light up and the headlights dont come on. While checking the fuses in the electrical box under the hood i realized that i was getting 12.5V with the voltmeter but the ground on the battery was not connected, my probe was using the ground on the battery terminal, does this make any sense? Or am i just off?

Yes there should be a fuse there.
As far as the information on the fuse block cover, I would bet that the cover is printed for all sub-models of at least that year YJ (possibly all Jeep 4.0's) and would assume that some of the YJs do have the ABS system. So if your Jeep doesn't have the system then no biggie, just don't worry about a fuse in it. DO however get a fuse in your headlight slot as that is a bit of an electrical hazard with the jumper.
