Missing courtesy Lamps

I know many people have been reporting missing courtesy lamps from under the hood and driver side foot well. When I picked up the vehicle (December) I noticed the wires under the hood and they swapped a lamp from another vehicle. I did not have a lamp in the driver side foot well. I contacted Chrysler they said it was listed on my vehicles parts but I need to contact the dealer to have this taken care of. When I contacted the dealer they said in the days after I picked up my vehicle they received a TSB stating that they were discontinuing the courtesy lamps (thus is I originally did not have the lamps to begin with).

Bottom line is that the dealer is saying these curtsey lamps are no longer available on the vehicles. What do you think? I could not find the TSB (Online) but then again I do not work in service either. If you took delivery did you have the courtesy lamps or were they missing?

Go to jeep.com and print out the "options and upgrades" page for the 2007 Wrangler Unlimited. It clearly lists the footwell and underhood courtesy lamps as standard on every model.

Mine came with them. The dealer's response does not sound correct to me. I would definantely speak with someone else at the dealer on this matter.

I believe those are the ones shining down on both the driver's and passenger's feet inside the vehicle.

sounds like the dealer is blowing you off. your jeep should have the same "standard" features as the jeeps that they have on the sales lot.....look at the jeeps on your dealers lot and see if they have the light.

Missing Lamps

I just picked up my 07 Ruby 4dr last week and it too does not have a bulb under the hood. All that exists there is a wire harness zip tied to the hood with an empty socket, which I assume takes a bulb.

Havent checked for a similiar situation under the drivers footwell, but I know I have no light coming from under there.

Does anyone have a wire with a socked under the footwell with no bulb as well?

Thanks...

My 2 dr Rubi also just has the harness and no light. I think I read somewhere that a '06 under hood light works with the harness.

Dealer is requesting a copy of my window sticker to get this issue rectified. Not sure why, the sticker doesn't indicate these two lamps as standard equipment anyway, but the website does. Unless he needs some code from the build plant. Has anyone else got their two lamps added? Also has anyone found a wire harness for the lamp under the driver foot well? I cant find one. Only under the hood I can see one clear as day.

My 07 had no lamp under the hood either. However when I checked my receipt/invoice from my climate control cable repair I noticed this was on the bill as well:

INSTALL UNDERHOOD LAMP AS PER CHRYSLER
Qty 1 Part 56021441 LAMP UNDE 8014001
Qty 1 Part 6502632 RIVET NON 18050043

Looks like if you are missing the lamp just bring it to the dealer for a free one. They did this without me even asking..........
