Wrong fuse, at least if you're pulling the one under the hood. There is a fuse behind the glove box you can pull or you can add a switch.
This is what I use.
or you can make your own.

I made myself an inline switch for about $3. I just bought an inline fuse holder, pulled fuse #4, stuck two wires in each side of the fuse slot, put the inline fuse holder inline with one of the two wires, and then connected both wires to the switch. Here's a pic of where I put the switch.

|RubiRed||I know for 2005 the Rubicon's at least have a specific fuse that the manual says to pull, and all it does is de-activate the door switches...but yes, you have to remember to turn the lights off, it doesn't beep anymore then, either LOL|

but make sure you turn off your lights too, i noticed a few days after I yanked my fuse that i no longer get a beep to remind me and one of these days might run my battery dead so far ive caught it and got them off in time

ok, finally some pics! sorry it took so long and sorry the pics are fuzzy... cheap digital cam... here's some pictures of the door switches after having been drilled and a cotter pin inserted. (assuming i can figure out how to insert images...)
keep it rubber side down...

|drummerwookie||i know if i take out that fuse, my auto dimming mirror with compass/outside temp, wont work either...and, for some reason, when i do that, my lockers on my rubi wont engage either, so i really cant pull that fuse and leave it pulled|

i like the idea about the inline switch - that would be easiest to use...
i actually took a different approach, involving a 1/16" drill bit and a cotter pin. each switch in the door jamb is just a cylinder with a little plastic piston inside. depress each switch, then drill a 1/16" hole all the way thru the cylinder and piston. locate the hole at EXACTLY the midpoint of the cylinder part of the switch and it will go thru the piston in a great place while also clearing the rubber o-ring seal on the piston.
so now when i take the doors off, i push in the switch with my finger and insert a small cotter pin into the hole. presto...
that probably sounds more complicated than it was... hard to describe without pics! i'll see if i can't post a picture in a minute.

|khenderson||if you always want them off, you can pull the little switch out and disonnect it. that's what i did. if you just want a temporary off, you can buy an inline switch to do the same, but when you want the lights on, you can flip the switch.|

|4Jeepn||Pull the fuse and don't worry about it.. you can still turn them on and off with the light switch... or they do sell some little clip thing that will work too either from 4wd.com or quadratec.com|

Lights off with doors off
What's a simple way to get the lights to stay off with the doors off without pulling the fuse? I've seen a few little gadgets sold on ebay but what can be used to keep them off?
