Customer Question

The rear dome light on my 2016 Cherokee will not go off. How do I turn it off?
JA: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?

JA: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet. I just got the jeep and thought there might be a switch I can't find.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

On the light make sure the switch is set to door and not on, next this depends on if rear cargo door light or rear middle seats light to what switches to check, each door has a switch. So for instance if middle seat light then you would want to check the door ajar switch on each of the two rear doors however being a 2016 I would suggest that unless a door is not fully closed (open and close each a little harder) and light is not set to on, then you take the vehicle to the dealer since it should be under warranty.

If all dome lights were on then it would usually be the dimmer/light on dash set to on on this you however say it is only the one light.

Thank you!
