Light in the dashboard.

After replacing the lamps, the backlight does not turn off even when the ignition is off. There is no reaction to a change in brightness either. The lights of the walkie-talkie and air conditioner behave normally. Tell me where to look?
Sorry for my google english : Frown2:

Basic rule of thumb #1. If you are gonna work on a Jeep, you must always remember. What ever you touched last is the first place to start when chasing a problem that popped up after doing a change. I would be pulling that gauge cluster back out and looking for bent over pins on the connectors on the back. Gotta be something going on back there....

I took out all the lamps, left only the backlight. There is no result, it is still burning.
I showed the dashboard to a local electrician, he said that there was no damage, maybe there was a problem with the control chip in the dashboard itself?
