dash lights/shifter lights out

Last night I was installing a new head unit into 1994 jeep Cherokee, I forgot to wrap the power wire and it sparked inside the dash a little bit. My dash lights and shifter lights went out. The next morning my head unit and electrical port went out as well. None of my fuses are popped. What is happening?

Re: dash lights/shifter lights out

Had the same problem with my 99 Cherokee,would lose the entire dash cluster . Common problem caused by poor contact with the main wiring harness . This would happen a lot after driving on washboard roads .The fix is simple but effective , make a fist and just give the dash a good hard whack on top dead center , worked every time for mine .
