Default Interior lights and instrument cluster stopped working

I have a 2000 Cherokee that one morning I went out to start it to go to work. Which it started fine but I noticed that I had no interior lights or working gauges. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

kick around and jiggle the pink wire that goes into what I think is a body control module its located right above your right foot when your foot is on the gas pedal ,its mounted to the fire wall this is where I traced my exact problem too on a 2000 also

I tried jiggling and moving the pink wire around like you had suggested. In fortunately it didnít work. Thank you for the tip though. Still looking for more ideas.

check your parking lights too.....on many older vehicles, if the instrument lights stop, it is because the parking lights went away

I checked and all of the exterior lights are working properly. Is there any way that I could determine definitively if it is the cluster or not?
