some gauge cluster lights won't work

When I got my Jeep I noticed that a couple (not all!) of the original bulbs weren't working, so I decided to do the LED swap. The same bulbs won't light up. I've searched the forum, but most of the problems appear to be the entire cluster not working. Could it just be contacts or the plugs into the cluster, or a fuse? I'm not very good with the electrical in the Jeep, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

check the contacts of the bulb holder, if they arnt flared up they might not be getting a good connection. if that doesnt work, you should probably just buy a used cluster, you can find them on ebay ranging from $40 +

Okay, I'll check that out. Right as you were posting I was thinking that I might change the holders around (don't know why I didn't think of it before) to see if they might be the problem. Still working on it. Thanks for your reply!
