Lights out behind gauges

Hey how's it going. I have a 97 wrangler and last night the lights behind the gauges went out. When starting the jeep the check engine and all other warning lights come on but no backlight. The dome light and radio are fine. Any advice on what's going on? Thanks

Have you checked the fuse?

If not the fuse, I would check the dimmer.

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

First, check the dimmer isn't turned all the way down as already suggested.
Do the marker lights work?
If they don't, and one of them has failed and taken the fuse with it (#1 behind the glove box), you will loose the cluster and dash illumination.
If the marker lights are good and dimmer turned up, but still no dash/cluster illumination check fuse 12 behind the glove box.

See if that gets you anywhere and report back.

If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.
