Wrangler Sahara interior light question

I am brand new to the forum and to being a Jeep owner. I bought a 2001 Wrangler Sahara yesterday but didn't notice until tonight that the interior lights aren't coming on when the door(s) are open. The interior lights work with the switch on the turn signal lever but will not work with the doors. Any clues as to how to solve this would be more than welcome! I looked in the manual but there just wasn't a lot of info there. BTW - I may be the most mechanically challenged member of this forum, but I'll do my best to understand anything technical.

Ok I found some earlier posts regarding the same issue. It turned out to be an absence of a 10 amp fuse in the #4 fuse port behind the glove compartment. My guess is the previous owner took the doors off a lot so he removed the passenger side switch in the door frame and removed the fuse. I have interior lights now at least on the driver side when open. Now to get a switch to install in the passenger door frame. Would rather take a few seconds to pull the fuse when I remove the doors than not to have a switch or the lights in the dark when the doors are on.

There is also the option of adding a internal switch when the doors are off.

The Mopar OEM solution is a knob that screws over each switch when the doors are off. My Jeep came with these knobs, and they screwed over the door switch. The after market ones are spring ones, which I got because I lost mine. I don't like them for driving because they can pop off. But, they are great for working on your vehicle when you are stationary with the doors open, which is when I use them.
