TJ Dash lights, and other interior illum lights not working

My dash lights, all other illumination lights went out the other night. I have check all the fuses in both boxes. Tested the Rheostat on the switch also. I did also notice the parking lights on the front fenders are not working also.

Any help here will be much appreciated.

Thanks

After taking anything and everything I could remove from the dash and tracing down the wires I finally found the problem. Apparently the prev. owner installed a switch under the seat that turns the dash and other lights off. I am not sure why someone would install something like this but it wont be on there much longer.
