these are the INTERIOR lights==Door Panels / etc
i have already TURNED OFF the DELAY on the HEAD LAMPS
LIGHT SWITCH is in OFF position
NORMAL opperation is about 15-30 seconds DELAY and then DIMS --> OFF
however, sometimes they must stay ON....RUNS battery DOWN
is there a DIMMER delay SWITCH/RELAY i could replace ??
ps... Door panel switches appear to function normally
Normal Operation usually activates after i press LOCK button on small REMOTE FOB
when i say the DOOR panel switches appear to function NORMALLY
that's because i have NO issues like == Computer says DOORS are OPEN
when they are CLOSED during NORMAL operation of the Jeep
SO i don't understand how a wire could be INTERMITTENT and NOT show up under normal Operation Conditions == DRIVING
this really appears to be the DIMMER part....
what exactly DIMS these lights ??
is it a SWITCH / DIMMER / RELAY or the COMPUTER MODULE
and since i can DISABLE the Front HeadLamp Delay=== main Light Switch
CAN i DISABLE this INTERIOR light DELAY ??
i was over on JeepForum.com
and MerlinTec answered the same Question with a:
TSB 08-026-01 == what is this TSB ?
LOOK down at messages #8 - #9
"The body control module dims these. You would have to disable the lights by removing or cutting wires to the body control module to disable it"
where is the BODY CONTROL MODULE ?
do u know the PART # XXXXX and approx cost $$
i really don't want to go into JEEP for a $600-800 repair on a 9yr old JEEP
to Disable Interior Lights=== how about i just REMOVE the BULBS ??
can u give me the part # XXXXX this BODY CONTROL MODULE
and can u tell me HOW exactly to REPLACE it ?
or can u Direct me to where i would find STEP-by-Step intx
i don't have HEAT in the CAB------doesn't leak
my mechanic told me the DUCT FLAPS were not Opening & Closing properly
A/C does WORK ===OK
however Set the Thermostat Controls to HEAT and U get NONE
does this Body Control Module have any influence over the above problem?
