How to Turn off Jeep Wrangler Interior Lights?

Jeep Wrangler/JK interior lights are getting gimmicky day by day. Because of some internal error with the system, the interior light won’t turn off, and if the button somehow got jammed, it won’t turn on.

Quick Answer: To turn off Jeep Wrangler interior lights there are two buttons on the sides of the light, push them, and it should turn the lights off. To turn off the cargo area lights, just press on the light itself to turn it off.

If your interior won’t turn off even after pushing the button, maybe the fuse is jammed, one of your doors is open, or the light button is set to stay “ON” all the time.
