Interior Door Handle Light out

2014 JGC Overland owner here and tonight one of my rear seat passengers noticed the interior driver side door handle (grab handle) light was not working. My questions are -

Is this easy to fix if it's the light?
What is all required to get to this light?
What's the part number for the stock light?

Thanks. Vehicle is under warranty but sometimes dealers feel lights are not under warranty.

Just found the same thing on my 14 Summit. Was hoping some had been into this before but I guess not.

It's an LED, so it shouldn't burn out in a year or even 10 years.

Having said that, I'm sure there are some dealers out there that would answer "that's normal operation" even for that.

I would still take it back as a first step. If they balk, call Jeep right in the showroom to complain. Make sure you're standing close to another customer.

I noticed both the door handle light and the lower cup holder are out on the same door but the window switch lights up. Haven't talked to the dealer yet but plan to

The window switches are on their own circuit, I believe with a relay as opposed to a fuse. The same goes for the lock and mirror controls.

Interior Door Handle Light out

I had the same problem with my rear drivers side door. Was a quick fix as it wasn't connected at the factory. Took dealer less than 30 minutes to take door panel off and connect it.
