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.

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.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.
