Running lights and dash out

As the title says guys, I have an 03 Rubicon and when I turn the lights on the running lights and the dash lights do not light up. I have had the truck for 6 months and its all stock. When I got it the fog light switch was broken and it is all in the same place, do you think its a fuse or is that whole switch fubar? Anyone else ever have this problem? Thanks

I'd start with the fuse first. And if your tail lights aren't on either, probably a fuse.

Tail lights and brake lights work. Including the blinkers....

Brake lights and blinkers run through different fuses. But if your dash lights aren't on, but your tail lights are, then doesn't sound like a fuse. Wish I could help your further. I'm sure someone else on here has a good idea.
