Short???! Help!!!

I have a 2001 Wrangler Sport. I just got it out of the shop after replacing my clutch and fuel pump. My jeep sat for a few months before I was able to fix it but not since it is out of the shop I have noticed new things wrong with it. For some reason my cruise control no longer works and my radio isnt working. Also nothing on my dash works. Well it works randomly when it feels like it. So all my gauges just shut off randomly. Has anybody ever had any problems with this? Have any idea what it could even be? A lead would be great before I dive blindly headfirst into the problem! Thank you!

I would suspect a bad ground behind the dash somewhere. Sorry that's not more specific.

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it!

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

Check connections/ wires going right into the fuse block. They tend to corrode a bit with what I've seen.

Check fuses. And check pins on the back of the gauge cluster where it connects to the dash. If you search it, people have taken it out and twisted the pins slightly to get better contact.

Thanks...I was thinking something with my fuses but decided to check to see if there were any other ideas out there. Hopefully it is an easy cheap fix!
