Interior lights will not switch off requiring the removal of bulbs to maintain battery. the four interior lights in the roof section all work but the switches do not have any affect. The door switches appear to be good. Any suggestions.?

    Thank you I have downloaded a wiring diagram and will try to resolve it that way

    The actual fault was rectified after removing the headlight switch and and lubricating the electrical contacts as the switch also controls the ON/OFF of the interior lights. Problem solved.

My left rear driveside pull handle lights switch is broken and the interior lights stay on. If you remove the bulb the lights will come on and go off repeadidly. Whats up?


If you can remove the switch. Then hook the 2 wires together, coming in to switch and out. If it works properly, then it is a bad switch causing this. Good-Day!

1996 jeep grand cherokee no automatic interior lights


1. If you have the light switch in the wrong mode the lights will not operate when you open the door.

2. If the interior lights do not operate at all (ie you cannot switch them on and off manually)then you need to check the fuse for the interior lights.

3. When set to the correct mode, the interior lights will operate from a door operated switch so if the switch has failed the lights will either stay on or not operate at all when you open and close the door. Eventually these door switches fail with repeated use and need to be replaced. (Consider how many times the small door switch has been operated since 1996).

1997 jeep grand cherokee interior light fuse. Where is it so I can take it out because my interior lights are staying on and going to drain my battery.


Hey there,
Sounds like you may have a bad switch at the door or in the dash on-off switch.
You could also remove the light bulb for a quickie, otherwise the interior light fuse should be in the fuse box: The older vehicles it was under the left side of the dash at the drivers seat (interior of car). Newer vehicles, it would be (typically) in the engine compartment near the drivers side fender wall.
Best regards
Ck

My interior lights in my 2007 pt cruiser wont go off. I had to pull the bulbs out of the dome and reading lights so the battery wouldnt go dead can you help me?


There is a short in the wiring of your interior lights. The wire has come loose and is now shorting against the metalic roof of your car. Remove the interior light from the roof enough so you can see the wires. Make sure the contacts are secure to the pins in the bulbs

Interior lights remain on after doors are closed causing battery to drain overnight. When fuse is removed lights go of and battery stays charged.


Check to be sure interior lights are turn off when you are in the vehical.If so check the interior light switches on the doors for proper opperation.

04 jeep grand cherokee limited, my four windows dont work but my moon roof window works, rear windshield wiper doesnt work, interior lights go on and dont turn off, any reason why or any solutions?


with the windows it obviously is something common to all four and the first item I would check is the fuse. Interior lights are controlled by the headlight switch and a worn switch can be the problem. If these are not the problem than I would want to check the wiring, specifically the ground. Ditto for the rear wiper. Fuse first. Switch second. Wiring third.

FUSE BOX HAS CLICKING SOUND


i'm sure that would be somewhat disconcerting. it's one of the relays clicking. remove the fuse panel cover and put your finger on each relay till you find the one that is clicking.... pull it out and replace it. you'll know you have the right one if the interior lights go off when you pull it out.
