No Lights-Are-On chime

Hey All

Just purchased a 99 TJ Sport this past summer. Love it. I just glides along the beach like a champ.

I was wondering if there is supposed to be a warning chime to indicate that the headlights are on when the engine is turned off. Mine does not have any audible warning.

Also, my reverse lights work only when they feel like it. Can't find any rhyme or reason as to when they do work.

Any suggestions??

Thanks,
Newbie

Check fuse number 4. It controls the dome lights and the headlight warning. People take it out so that the dome light doesn't stay on when the doors are removed.

No idea on the reverse lights.

^This. I hate the ding. I never put fuse #4 back in.

Thanks for the info. My son drives it mostly and has already left the lights on, thankfully not overnight. So I'll check the #4 fuse and hope that it's not too irritating.

Or check the plugs that the door hits in order to turn the lights off. I'm not sure what it is called but instead of taking the fuse out I just unplug those which is much easier in my opinion haha. But this also causes the alarm to not go off. And I'm not sure about the reverse light. Maybe you need to check the connections or something? Loose wires maybe? Worth a shot at least.
