Light under the hood

Guys - My 1-day old, 02 Sahara has a light under the hood.

thanks

It's supposed to come on when the hood is opened, there's a mercury switch inside of it. If it doesn't come on check the bulb and make sure there's power on the wire feeding it.

The one on my sold '00 TJ worked most of the time but often the mercury inside it wouldn't make a good connection. They don't put out much light anyway so if you can't get it to work it'll be no big loss.

Regards,
Richard

Make sure that it's plugged in as well.

The one on my '04 has never worked. I assume that it would be somewhat useless if it did...
