As stupid as this sounds, you always want to check the basics as you are doing. First check to make sure the switch that dims that dashboard lights is not turned all the way down. This is much more common than one would think. If the switch is turned all the way in both dircections and you still don't have lights, the bulb(s) in the dash are probably out.
---in addition to this answer: i have the same problem and mine is stemming from a short somewhere in the electrical system. it started with dash lights, then tail lights, now turn signals...hope your problem is less severe but it could be the same thing. the jeeps and dodges are known for electrical shorts caused by excessive heat in the wiring. the plastic sheathing melts and fuses two wires together. look for a "sticky" or brown wire and there is your short.
It could also be a fault in the dimmer switch itself.
Where is the 1994 JEEP grand cherokee Daytime Running Lamps Lights Module? Lights are working but the running lights and dash board lights are out.
It should say TAIL for taillights or maybe brake lights.
Cherokee Laredo, no. Grand Cherokee Laredo, yes.
No, the Grand is different from the Cherokee.
No, they don't.
The fuse probably blew that controls the dashboard lights.
Passenger side near the door hinge on the dash housing.
look it up
It will bolt up, but it will not shift. 1997 is electric, 1994 is hydraulic
