Tail lights and dash don’t work

With my new rock crawling fenders after hooking up the blinkers my dash and tail lights stopped working and my brake lights back up lights all work I don’t have a light out and I checked all my fuses and I still can’t fix it.

What model Jeep? CJ? JK? TJ? XJ? XJ? M151? ZJ? WJ? Ya gotta give at least a few details of what you're driving when asking for help please. If your Jeep has a power distribution center did you check all the fuses inside there too?

When you have a choice, buy American made.

Recheck fuse number 1 in the fuse block, use a meter or a trouble light to ensure you're getting power through the fuse instead of just looking at the fuse. If the fuse is blown, make sure you didn't accidentally short one of the parking light power wires to ground when you installed the new fenders. The power wire for the parking lights is the TN/BK one.

Turn signals

I purchased a 97 TJ as a rebuild project. When I used the left turn signal it'd just lock up with the dash light lite but no signal. It's my understanding when it stays lite means a ground issue or burned bulb. Grounds were good and bulbs not burned. Traced it down to the front left turn signal connection. The conductive internals were rotted away...replaced with a $10 new plug and problem solved. Not sure if this helps but you never know.
