Doors off/ dome light on

Hey every one , I have had cherokees in the past but know I own a wrangler. I would like to know how you deal with the dome light when the doors are off. The dealership says that it will go off in about twenty min. but it doesn't. Anyone else have this problem and how did you fix it. Right now I'm using duct tape. Any ideas would be great. thanks.

Or simply open up your glove box, and remove it...then crab the bottom fuse, on the right hand side. That will turn your light off. I find that to be the easiest fix. Just replace the fuse, when you put your doors back on, for some interior lighting.

By the way, welcome to the WF!!!!!!

#4 fuse in the panel. Lights still come on when you shut off the jeep and you still have dome lights on the switch.

I just unplugged the switch. Can still turn on the dome light manually with the panel dimmer switch.

Darn, I did it again. Sorry about the fuse response. Don't have that problem on my YJ. You would think that I would look at the category, before making a responce. Glad you caught that, GJ. Unless he has a TJ, and posted it in the wrong section.......
