Yeah this is the solution I usually use. But I do love switches...

TroyR219 Just pay the $30 when you have an order with quadratec next... its $30 people... goes in in about 5 minutes and works great. no worries either. Looks factory and complete to. Not just a wire running here with a toggle somewhere else.

TJDave Great idea.

But, my fuse #4 is also still sitting in the tray by the TC shifter. Been there for a couple years. It's pretty dirty. I may have to wash it.

jgorm I have a switch on the drivers door switch so I can have the door open and turn the buzzer off. When I pull the doors, I pull the fuse.

x2. I've drained the battery a few times already since I leave for work when it's dark out and arrive when the sun is up. I need to figure out a way to hook them up to a relay.

Pulled my fuse the day I bought the Jeep. 6 years later its still laying in the bottom of the glove box.

BigGreen98 Wow! Thanks for the support people! A hey that's a great idea would have worked just as well! :-( J/K

JYJeep I like the tech, low cost solution, but my spouse bought me the spring loaded clips. They work and I like that my wife bought something for my jeep...

C.L. Make sure the wire leading to the fuse/switch is well insulated. A short anywhere before the relocated fuse is no longer protected.
07-16-2011 03:37 PM
flyfishnevada I saw that bypass somewhere else. Much better than pulling the fuse. I gotta track down a short before I do that. Mine come on whenever the heck they feel like it, even when the fuse is pulled.

Tired of fighting your dome light?

I don't know about you guys, but today I got tired of pulling out the dome light plungers when I remove my doors. So I go a toggle switch an online fuse and some wire. Literally 1.00 worth of stuff I had laying around. I bypassed the fuse in the fuse panel and mounted it under the dash. Now when I take off the doors I just flip the switch. Took about 30 min. For free I have the exact same thing my cuz ordered from quadratec for 30.00! Go me!
