Help me out

Ok so I've had this jeep for about a month now. I took off the hard top today and put on my soft top for the first time. Now my dome lights and foot well lights won't go out. I still have the doors on so I'm not sure what it is. This never happened when I took the hard top off by itself

There is what I call a deadman switch that the door holds open when shut. When you open the door it closes the switch and the lights come on. Unplug those and see if the lights go off and you'll know if that's your problem

Check where you unplugged the harness for the hardtop and see if there is something grounding part of the connector. The Switches for the dome and courtesy lights are on the ground side of the circuit. Or did you install any new sheet metal screws for your soft top? Could have nicked and grounded a wire like that.
