It is the door jam switch. You need to check that it is getting push it when the door close???? Ar just push the button in by hand to see if it goes off???? You might need a new switch on the door jam????

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

You may have left a door half open, or have a bad door switch. Until you find out what the problem is you can manually push your door locks with your hand to lock them without arming the alarm and still have your vehicle locked, and not have to worry bout hte alarm.
