tarheel I had my Jeep 3 months before I noticed previous owner had pulled #4. Never really noticed dome light not working until I turned switch to brighten display and turned on dome light. Put the fuse back in for about 2 months and removed again when doors came off for a warm day. Hasn't been back in since.

Scout Why "buy" anything or "take xxx minutes to install" when you can pull a fuse in 20 seconds or less?

chiro2736 The way that I do it is...Take a paper clip and bend it, Slide it under the wedge on each Side of the light button, then it should hold, it does for me...I use a large office paper clip then it just slips right of and throw it out when you put the doors back on. The clips quadratec sell work as well, but I have heard of people closing the doors on them...ouch. Do what ever works for you!

I bought this. It took 5 minutes to install, and works perfectly. Sure, it's cheaper to pull the fuse, but this solves your problem with the flick of a switch. I personally find it very useful because my doors/hardtop go on and off a lot during the summer and this is just one less thing to worry about when making the switch...

MCG I unplugged the Fuse #4 and since I knew that I always push my light switch just in case.

Triple88a I unplugged the button thing at the door.

Take a look at the front of the door and notice something that looks like a button. Press it the lights should go out. Put your hand behind the dash and pull it out. For the summer days I have that disconnected and when i need the interior lights on i just turn them on manually by turning the headlight light switch.

Interior Lights

I recently purchased an '04 Wrangler. I live in MN and the weather is finally warming up enough to be able to lower the top and take off the doors ( I have a soft top with half doors). My question is this......Is there any way to disable the interior lights? When you take the doors off, the Jeep just thinks that a door is open, so the interior lights (on the roll bar) remain on for 20 mintues before the automatically shut off. A buddy of mine has an '07 and he said his actually has an electrical plug on the door you can disconnect when removing the doors. I sent an email to Jeep asking them how to disable the lights on my '04 and they told me to take it to a dealer and have them dig into the electrics. Well, I figured I would just pop out the bulbs rather than spend $500 to $1000 at the dealer. Didn't they think people would take off the doors? Anybody know of a better way than popping the bulbs in and out all the time?
