AnswerMany of the Wranglers have a fuse in the fuse block behind the glove compartment just for this reason. On mine, it is the lower right fuse. It is even labled as the dome light door switch bypass, or something similar. It bypasses the switches and kills the lights unless you use the light switch to turn them on. It also turns the light on for 10 seconds when you turn the key off so you can exit the vehicle. All you do is pull the fuse when you have the doors off or if you have soft lowers on that do not contact the switch. Or you can buy a $25 switch that does the same thing, but it also makes the manufacturer of the switch richer.
