    Disconnect switch,take out light bulb,install toggle switch,leave the doors on,take to dealership and let them figure it out.

    On my '03 I just removed the fuse also. Easiest solution.

    The dome light switch is a very very easy install. I use it all the time on mine.

  10. It's mounted in your sound bar just a light that turns on and off when you open and close your door

  11. Re: dome light

    I just up plugged that door switch and put a toggle in the dash. very simple, all you need is a wire that is grounded to go through the switch then to the light.

    Pull the fuse, or install the switch. I've also seen "clips" in the catalogs that hold the door pin switch in. Don't know how well they work though.

    Dome light???? You don't need no stinkin' dome light.... It is a Jeep isn't it or we are talkin' BMers here..... Just kidding. I haven't had doors on mine for about 8 years. I just disconnected the wires by the doors. Little tape around the connectors and have been tucked away under the dash for 8 years. Good night my little dome light....LOL

    On my 06 unlimited, the fuse is in the lower right hand corner of the fuse box behind the glovebox.

    don't even need the tape if the dome light was installed correctly, you only switching ground to the light bulb. so that wire is just a ground (switched) connection.. of course the plug for it has to be in good shape or it will turn your light on everytime it bounces to ground..

    The dome light is on a delay timer from the key, it should only stay on about 5 or 10 seconds after pulling the key out (with fuse removed) then go out. That's how my 06 is anyway. My fuse listings are on a sticker on the back of the glove box.
