Doors off light switch! : D

My jeep has a dome light that would always stay on with the doors off because the sensor sensed the door open just as anyone else's would. I got tired of unplugging the wire all the time and quickly realized sometimes it would be nice to use the light without having to fumble in the dark to plug the wire back in or get my phone out n hit the flash light app. So I rigged up a switch and it's turned out real handy. I take my doors off, switch the light off and have easy access to flip it on whenever I need light. Even though this is old news i know, I just thought it was cool and felt like sharing ; )

Cool. If you turn your dash dimmer switch all the way up they'll come in too.

Oh ic what you mean now....i can completely unplug that door switch and then use my dimmer to switch on the light....FML lol. I guess it still somewhat makes it easier, i dont have to unplug and plug in anything i just have the switch instead.
