Re: whats wrong with my dash lights

It Might be that either you have burnt Lamps on there, Or a bad fuse... Burnt Lights are a common issue with our jeeps though...

Re: whats wrong with my dash lights

i have the same jeep as you and mine all went out. it is the LEDs inside that went out. there are pretty cheap replacements on ebay. i even upgraded to a limited setup for like $20 this summer.

Re: whats wrong with my dash lights

If all the bulbs went out in the Info center, A/C controls, and the bottom row of switches too, then it may be something else.. They are 3 seperate units and it would be a real coincedince if all the bulbs went at the same time...Check fuses just for the heck of it...

Re: whats wrong with my dash lights

the limited has a chrome trim around the dials. the LEDs are sealed inside the housing so i figured it would be easier to replace than to take it apart and change out the bulbs since i hate wiring. i just searched ebay for the part and bought a new one and it is all plug and play. i would check your fuses first since they have more lights out than i did. i only lost the lights in the dials.

Re: whats wrong with my dash lights

dont all the limiteds have the auto temp control? This unit has 4 dials and dual temp controls, and would not work in the Laredos.....I could be wrong though...The one with the chrome around the rings is just an updated Laredo unit.....They changed it up a bit to update the interior ...The Laredo units only have 3 dials

Re: whats wrong with my dash lights
