1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee broken rear interior light buttons
My kid's friend played with the push-button rear interior lights in my 1995 Grand Cherokee and now the lower console light (time and date) are out, the radio won't work and the remote/alarm won't work either. How do I take this apart and (carefully) put the button/spring assembly back together in the upper console?
Is this a common problem and does it have an easy fix?

You co0uld change the module but I don't know the exact location of yours (under the dash) If I was working on it and couldn't get a location, Id take a look at one from a parts house so I had an idea what I was looking for, then start looking. They aren't cheap though so sometimes it's best to have a good shop look it over just to make sure it will fix the problem. When working, I test everything either with meters, scanners etc or use known good units to check problems. Here, I can only make educated guesses. Electrical parts are generally non-returnable so mistakes can be costly. Good luck though.
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.
check your light dimmer & see if you have it set all the way down.If it's anything like my 99WJ it has an off setting when the dimmer is set all the down causing the interior lights to not come on when you open the doors,hope this helps
the button that pushed in when you close the door could be bad its literally like a $10 part and plugs in and is only held in with one screw. My interior lights used to flash on and off and i replaced that and now good as new, but you would need to figure out which door is doing it by pushing the button in manually
check the rear glass and doors the button thing that tells the dome light to come on when u open it might be stuck in the outward position..that or check by your headlight switches usually u can turn it on manually over there
I don't know about the remote hand held key problem but concerning the light staying on...Try... turning off the rear dome light by pushing up on the fixture... it may have been accidently activated when loading stuff in the rear.
The rear dome light has a option feature that allows you to turn on/off interior lighting while loading cargo at night.
