Door Removal question, super quick, super easy....only will take a sec...

I took the doors off for the first time 2 nights ago and it was great. just had a quick question: to kill the console light and the little buzzer thing, do you just have to pull the wires out of the back of the little door tab? i just don't want to kill my batter.

Or use could use a couple of these $10 gadgets from Q-tec:

That way you are less likely to screw up your wiring by connecting/disconnecting all the time.

7 years, no problems. And it's free. $10 QT is $20 shipped.

I did accidentally kick the door pin last time I was wheeling and broke the f-er off.

Telly - before I pulled my plug, I used to remove the grounding screw from the front. It would stop the light for lighting up, but allow the plug to pull out a bit.

Well, once it was pulled out when I slammed the door on it and snapped it in 5 pieces. They're only like $7 from jeepsareus.com, but it was still a pain. Got the new ones in and started pulling wires instead.

after reading this post, i just decided to leave them unplugged for good. i mean, the console light really doesn't throw that much light. im going to go out on a HUGE limb and say that I'll be fine without it.

Only reason why I keep mine pluged in is because of the alarm. Other than that, I have no use for them

Is there any trick to getting the doors off easily? I just got my Jeep about a month ago, got the doors off twice, but have a terrible time getting them off.

grease the hinges before putting them back on. Also, make sure you're lifting straight up. I reach through the window and grab the door from both sides, and lift. Should pop out easy after some grease.

the best way to make sure you're lifting straight up is to get you hands as close to the hinges as possible. that way you wont be lifting at an angle. mine took a while the first time i took them off, but i acually just put some petroleum jelly on the pins when i got them out and they've been great since.

I just unplugged the wires, wrapped them in electrical tape and zip-tied them up out of the way. I don't think I've ever heard a buzzer though, even when it was connected.

I also scrubbed out my hinges with a piece of abraisive 3m Pad cut to fit in, that was soaked in PB Blaster. i also scrubbed the pins down the same way, and then I flooded it all tieh lithium grease. Make sure you wipe off any extra lithium or it makes a mess of things.

As to the wires and switches, I have heard about people installing cheap toggle switches on any of the wires and screwing them in place. No disco's anymore, nothing to break either.
