Part Number for Light Switch?

I need a part number or where I can get a light switch for a 99 TJ. Not the column mounted one but the dash mounted one with the pull/push light switch. All my gauge lights are out and all the wires seem to be fine so Im guessing it's somethign internal on the switch.

Under the hood in the PDC and, more likely, the fues behind the glove box inside the vehicle. A $10 Radio Shack meter is a great investment for this kind of thing.

Incorrect.. There are fuses for the headlights.
There is also a 24 amp circuit breaker built into the headlamp switch.
edit: Corrected

Fixed it. Fuse 1 in the glove box fuse panel works the marker and dash lamps. The circuit breaker is not for that circuit, it's only for the dip/main beam lights. Fuse 1 (fuse box) gets power from fuse 4 (PDC). fuse 4 also supplies fuse 2 in the fuse box (stop lamps). The dip/main headlamps get power from fuse 10 in the PDC which goes to the circuit breaker in the headlamp switch.

If the fuse is OK you may have a problem with the head lamp switch, or the wiring from the fuse panel to the switch. Check for live at the tan/black wire which is the feed from the fuse. The outputs for the external and dash lights are on different wires so I expect the problem is with the supply side.
