None of my interior lights work please help!!

I have a 99 tj sport and since I've had it for about a year none of the interior lights work I know in my old jeep you would turn the switch to the left of the steering column all the way to the left until it clicked and all of the lights would come on but when I do that nothing happens I've checked all the fuses and bulbs and they all look fine.

Did you check the fuse? Some people just pull the fuse.

There is always the possibility that the bulb is bad.

Sent from my phone where correct grammar is difficult.

Could you take a picture of what you have going on behind the glove box? Curious to see if anything extra is behind it or missing...

Or, like the Jeeper above stated, the bulb could be out... I think a way to test this is to see if you get the door chime thing. If you do and the light is still off, chances are it is burnt out. I think that is how it works...

I've actually discovered the problem now, for some reason there is no wires running from the dome light to the switch. But thanks for all the help

Just dealt with that myself on my ZJ. Someone redid the headliner and forgot to run the wire across to the center dome light. All is well now though.
