IIRC the orange wire is for the dash lights for dimming the lights in the dash and radio and it is connected to the headlight switch

98 TJ SE bezel switch wiring

Hey guys,

I need help from someone either with a 98 Sahara or someone who has wired bezel switches in a 98 TJ SE.

I'm putting fog lights in and I want them independent of the headlights. I put a switch in the bezel and ran power from the rear defogger relay in the PDC to my fog lights relay to power the lights. The continuity for the main power is good, I'm having my problem with the switch wiring in the bezel. I checked for continuity in the wires behind the bezel that would be powering switches if I had a Sahara and they seem to be dead.

My question is, can anyone tell me what color wires are powering what switches/accessories on a 98 Sahara. And does anyone know why those wires wouldn't be hot?

I've tried with the key in start, run and accessory, none work. All the wiring diagrams I've seen are inaccurate when it comes to the switch wire colors. I hear they change from year to year

Thanks!
