Re: Dome Light Stays on while Driving

I don't have my GC yet, so I can't look it up. But, I'll bet the owner's manual has a diagram.

Thumbs up Re: Dome Light Stays on while Driving

This forum rocks! I was having the same problem. I had the switch turned on as well. Thanks guys. Living as far north as I do I have not had much need for map lights the last few months and forgot those buttons were up there.

Re: Dome Light Stays on while Driving

My wife just called me complaining that this same light wouldn't go off - she was going to take the car to a dealer! While I had her on the phone, I went to this forum and BANG! I find the answer and get her to turn off the light - problem solved - This forum is a great resource!

Re: Dome Light Stays on while Driving

I had this on my 14 Grand Cherokee. I am aware of the difference between the map light and the driver side "dome" light. I also know about the switch/wheel on the right driver side and all my doors are closed. I was able to fix it with the following procedure

  1. Start the car with remote start
  2. Remotely open the auto lift gate
  3. Enter the car
  4. Close the rear lift gate with the inside button
  5. Turn off the car
  6. Exit the car
  7. Close and lock the door with the key fob
It is likely that not all of these steps are necessary and results may vary. I didn't want to spend the time to figure out which of the steps is the right one. My light was staying on for days and was annoying. This fixed it for me. Just one more in a long list of strange electronic issues on the new model.

Re: Dome Light Stays on while Driving

Hey, I have a 2013 Grand Cherokee that just started doing the same thing you described. Did you figure out what was the problem? Thanks

Re: Dome Light Stays on while Driving

I made the same mistake and could not seem to get the light to go off - until I noticed that there was a button to the left of the power lift gate in the overhead console. I was very close to taking it to the dealer and embarassing myself. I rode around with the map light on for about two days - cursing it the whole time! What an idiot.
