so... check first if they are connected and also check that both door switches are in good condition.

|AzTJ||eh I'll try...|

|Triple88a||are there only 2 wires in the back that connect and disconnect? how about just hotwiring the wires /by passing the switch to see if it makes a difference before you start replacing stuff?|

I may have found the solution but its too damn cold outside to go try... maybe in the morning before work.
Found on another forum someone having the same issue. And it happen that one of the wires on the fues block(behind fuse #4) was pushed out. So I'll try that tomorrow. If not I'm going to replace one of the door switches.

|Triple88a||i'm guessing somehow the button is gone bad? ( i dont know if its the same wiring though)|

They somehow clip on and hold the button pressed in.. ebay should have them...
I wonder if your dome light will work if you have the headlights on and rotate the light knob until it clicks to turn on the domelight like that (counter clockwise i think)..

|AzTJ||I've check the fuse and they are all acounted for and not blown. And there is nothing on the door switches to keep them depress. I might just have to rip them out.|

|Mudweiser||Its called the door switch defeat. Owners manual will show you what fuse number it is. Makes it so when you have your doors off the light doesnt sta yon for hours on end. Also keeps the buzzer chiming thing from going off. Ide also look at your door switches, could be grounded together if someone did some sort of by passs or i think they sell some small retainer clips to hold the switch closed when the door is open. Which makes no sense to me when all you got to do is pull the fuse out and leave it out.|

|AzTJ||ahhhh - thanks! I'll have to check that before my trip into town.|

|Scout||Not nessesarily. Mine # 4 fuse is completely out of the fuse box and my dome lights work when my headlights are on. If you pull the #4 fuse your dome lights quit working when the doors are open, your low fuel buzzer/dinger quits working and the key in the ignition chime doesn't work either.|

|AzTJ||thanks guys - but wouldn't that keep the dome from lighting up all together? It works when I turn the headlight switch to manually turn on the dome light but just not when you open the doors.|
|12-04-2006 01:42 PM|
|Scout||I'm thinking it is the number 4 fuse? Could be wrong.|
|12-04-2006 01:41 PM|
|hardy1531||Check the fuse box behind the glove box. The previous owners probally removed the fuse. I believe it is number 11....? I would have to get up and go look and it's cold outside so ..... I am gona leave it at that.|

Dome light not working
Ok - The guy mentioned this to me before selling it and I thought no biggie I can fix it. But I get home from work about 6:30 and its pitch black and I need a light to get out of the Jeep. Now I'm perplexed. THe dome light on the sound bar works when you use the headlight switch to turn on the "cab lights" but when you open the doors nadda. I was thinking it might be the switch on the door but both of them not working at the same time? I dont think he installed a bypass switch like I've seen a lot of people do when they take off the doors but I looks like the doors have never been removed. Any one got some ideas that I can toy with? Thanks guys!
