Why does my Jeep Grand Cherokee dome light stay on?
Is there something making my Jeep Grand Cherokee dome light stay on after I stop my car and open and close my doors? I’m afraid I’ll forget about it one day and wake up with a dead battery!

Your Jeep Grand Cherokee dome light likely stays on due to a problem with your vehicle’s door light switch.
Most cars have a light switch in their doors that will turn off the interior lights once the doors close. If this switch goes out, however, your car lights will stay on indefinitely (or at least, until you turn them off). If your switch is faulty, that could be causing your dome light to stay on after your car is stopped.
To fix this issue, you’ll be paying about $200, depending on the labor charges at the repair shop you choose.
