T2000J Only problem I had with the clips I would for get about them when I put the doors back on broke 2 door pins needles to say my fuse stays out until the hard top & full doors go back on first snow fall

ABombs13 the spring clips are the cheap and easy way to do it. looking into getting the switch down the road but the clips work fine for now.

Did the same. Works well and no messing with fuses

Rayko Got the little spring things from Qtec, they work great. Takes about a minute to put them on.

TanAndTatted8 I bought the little spring clips from shopjeepparts.com and they work great. Around $7. Just takes a second to put them on and the jeep thinks the doors are on

leppich_italy 1- pull the #4 fuse from behind the glove box--note also disables the chime if you leave your lights on. can = dead battery. keep that in mind
2- pull the bulb out of the light if you don't need it--all works as it should but you don't have a light in the cab.
3- add a switch to the #4 fuse so you don't have to drop the glove box and pull the fuse out- still disables the chime if you leave your lights on. can = dead battery. keep that in mind

jersey steve We spent the $30 or so for the switch from quadratec. Its pretty convenient.

Another option is to pull the bulb out of the dome light.

Vroooom 1) pull fuse number 4 as described above.
2) buy one of the clip gizmos available from most outfitters to trick your jeep into thinking the door is there.
3) Install a switch that replaces the fuse and trick the jeep into thinking the fuse is there or removed, depending on how you flip da switch.

MississippiDirtTJ Pull fuse #4 behind the glove box. This disables the annoying door chime as well. Downside is that your jeep will no longer tell you when you leave your headlights on. A worthy trade off IMO

No doors, lights on?

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to everything. Just got my 05 black wrangler x two weeks ago. Finally decided to take the doors off of her, but my lights above my seats stay on when my doors come off! There has to be something I can disconnect possibly to make the lights go off when I take the doors off so my battery doesn't die? Anyone know any solution? Thanks in advance
