04 Rubicon Interior Lights

Hey Guys,

Just bought an 04 Ruby day before yesterday and I can't seem to find a position on the light switch that allows an interior light override for when the doors are off? The switch goes all the way down where the instrument panel (sorry I'm a pilot) is barely visible then all the way up until it has one position where the instrument panel is VERY bright then one more click until the lights come ON, but not finding a way to turn them OFF for when the doors are not on the Jeep???

Any ideas?

You can rewire the door switches or buy this. Dome Light Switch Clips for 97-06 Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

On the 2003 Sahara, I have a pair of needle nose pliers to pull fuse #4. Of course if you leave the head lights on with the fuse out, the beeping noise is not made when you open the door.

If I remember right - pulling the fuse also disables something else you don't want disabled.

Sometimes you'd like to open the door without that damn light coming on. Like when you are trying to sneak away when her husband came home unexpectedly.

I always used the pull fuse route, I don't recall if disabling any other functions.

I have the clips that are sold from quadratec and I love them easy cheap and if you want you can leave them on and still shut the door. They also sell a pre-fab rewire kit that replaces fuse #4 with a new fuse holder and a switch to mount under your dash wear you can disable or enable with just the flip of the switch.
