Dome light issue

Ok so I know the older Jeeps you had to remove a fuse to stop the dome lights from coming on when the doors are off.

I have a 2011 4 door JK and the lights normally go off with no issues. I didn't start the day with any issues once taking the doors off but, now the dome light is staying on....

I have double checked the gate is shut properly and the gague cluster is not showing any thing is open. I have also tried clicking them off but they are staying on. I have started and truned off my Jeep several times but the lights are still on.

I am not sure what to do to get them to go off please help.

I was gonna say this might be the problem.

Check if the light icon is pointed toward a square or the arrow shaped thing above the square. If its on the square (2nd pic), thats why they wont turn off because that is like a permanent ON switch.

The second square is the on switch, not the first one.

This.
More than once, I've found this exact thing to be affecting my own dome light mysteriously not wanting to go off.

Worse yet, I typically have been unable to identify how I managed to turn it on without knowing I had done such.

Its very easy to accidentally rotate on as you turn on the headlights - I have had to diagnose it too!

Yeah I realized that after I posted the picture. Either way, it gets the point across
