Dedicated fuse for speedometer dash lights?
 
I just installed a new speedometer cluster. The signal, high beam,4 whell drive and parking breal lights all work. The regular dash lights for the speedometer do not and neither does the temp gauge. All the other lights work, tach, volt gauge, clock etc.The sun went down and I didn't have a chance to check fuses. Is there a dedicated fuse for the temp gauge that might also serve the lights in the speedometer? Aloha. 84 CJ-7 Laredo

1. Welcome to the forum.
2. Please complete your profile.
3. Do you have a repair manual on the Jeep? If not, it's a good investment.
4. Buy a drop light and/or a flashlight, when it gets dark, these are mighty handy!
5. Check the fuses next time BEFORE you ask the question so that there is more information given in the post.
6. Did you check the light switch panel lamp dimmer?

HTH...

Make sure the cluster is grounded well, especially if it's on a 'glass tub.
The cluster does have it's own lamp fuse and is grounded via your headlight switch.
Your temp gauge problem is unrelated.
Your replacment gauge should have a 12v lead and a sender wire which sounds like it could be the culprit if your old temp gague was working.
