    When you remove the doors, do you have to tie the two wires (in the door open indicator thingy) together or seperate them so not to cause the battery to die??? Or will just rewmoving the lightbulb work?

    aren't you an electronics technician or something?? /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif The Haynes manual shows the door switch is normally open. Opening the door closes the switch and provides the ground. Take the switch out and cap each wire. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    You could always hack into the wiring and install a toggle switch in the dome light circuit. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've also seen Jeeps with a little metal clip in the door jamb. It could rotate around to hold the dome light switch pressed down all the time, for use with the doors off. Then when you put the doors back on, the clips get rotated out of the way. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    You can take out the bulb or put a toggle switch into the hot lead to the bulb so you still have a light when you need (or moreso your GF as I find a flashlight to be beyond convenient.
