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.?

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).
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
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
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.
On the 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee if you look in the glove box, on the front of it there are 3 screws remove them and there are relays and fuse under it. the front one on the right hand side is the interior lights.
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.
