Q: Interior lights not going off

asked by on

The interior lights of my jeep will not go off.

The interior lights can be triggered by opening the door. A common failure item is the door switch, which tells the vehicle that doors are left open. Also, the metal near the locking mechanism on the door itself is typically very weak, and should be inspected for breaks. A break here will usually still allow the door to close and lock, but wont hold tight enough to activate the switch. You should probably also have the interior lighting circuit inspected for faults that could cause a short that keeps the lights turned on. Consider our expert team of mechanics, here at YourMechanic, for a full diagnosis of any electrical issues you may be having.
