You can either pull the fuse behind the glove box or get some spring clips from 4wd.com.

I got tired of pulling the fuse so I ended up buying the "lights out" spring clips from 4wd.com

#4 should be the bottom right fuse behind the glove box

give the pin a good tug and it will pull out, then you just unplug the wire harness. i suggest pulling the fuse, or getting one of the springs that hold the button down.

i usually just smash the bulbs with my face. its easier than searching for the answer.


look on the back of the glovebox, or under the fuse panel. there will be a chart showing you which fuse is which.

2x.

Also when you pull the fuse, do the manual lights still work?...like turning on the interior lights manually by using the switch.

When pulling the fuse (actually when using any of the above methods) just be mindful that, e.g., the buzzer for having left your headlights on won't work either (I made the painful experience myself - put the doors back on but forgot to put the fuse in, left the car with lights on...you can imagine the rest)
