2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee interior lights stay on when door is closed

interior lights wont shut off when car is turned off

The Body Control Module may be faulty.


Maybe you’ll be lucky and it isn’t the BCM. But electrical gremlins are fairly common in those vehicles as they age. Other things to look at:

First, ensure the dimmer switch for the dash lights isn’t turned all the way to the position that turns on the interior lights (may not apply to your vehicle).

Second, are all the door switches working properly?


The driver’s door switch is the one that usually fails first. Worth testing.
