Another newbie question (doors off, interior lights on)

Okay, so i took the doors off and now the interior lights and key buzzer stay on, is there anything short of pulling the switches on the door frame to turn these off? thanks much
ps doors are heavy, wear protective footwear, not flipflops

x3, but be forewarned that this will defeat your "headlights are on " warning chime. At some point, you WILL leave your lights on, but at least now you'll remember why...

This is the free way to do it. However if you want your headlight chime back when you have the doors on, but don't want to constantly be installing and uninstalling the fuse you can use . Yet another solution would be to add a switch so that you can turn that whole circuit "on" when you have the doors on and "off" when you're doorless. Let me know if you have questions!

I can't walk away from my jeep without looking at it at least once anyways so I just leave the #4 fuse out year round

A few vendors sell these little spring clips that hold the pin in when the doors are off.

I bought the clips... worth the couple of bucks. Speaking of, I realize today that in Missouri, taking the doors off is totally useless. Because the next day, every day, predictions of heavy rain come out of nowhere /rant
