interior lighting

So I swapped vehicles with my brother for a day and when I got my Jeep back the lights down by the floor (under the dash) wouldn't turn off. I checked the push-buttons inside the door-jambs - that's not it.

For now I just pulled the fuse. Any idea what's going on here or how that could happen?

I'm not exactly sure how earlier TJs work, but IIRC they're similar to XJs so is there any chance the headlight switch is just rotated to position to turn the interior lights on?

Twist the headlamp switch, you should should feel it go past the detent at the end of it's turn, and the interior lights will go out. Turn it back past that detent to turn the lights back on again.

haha wow I'll try that. I didn't even know that the headlamp switch COULD twist.... b/c it seems like just an in-and-out button.
Thanks a lot, guys.
What's funny is that because I pulled that fuse, I've gone a day or two without any dash gauges or a radio.
