#1150 of 1888 Interior light
Jan 22, 2008 (9:40 pm)
hey yall i just bought a 2000 jeep wrangler tj and i freakin love it. it has a soft top and half doors and i was playin around with it gettin to know all the stuff and i noticed that when i take the doors off the interior light does not go off and i cannot find out how to turn it off, ive tried many things. now, i found the sensor on the door frame where when the doors pushes it in the light goes off, but how does that happen if theres no door at all?! anyways i know its a rookie question but im new to jeeps, so if i could get some feedback on my little dilema i would be more than greatful, because i love driving with the doors off. thanks in advance!

Open up your glove box and take it out. It should just be on a strap and then easily removed. On the side of the box is a listing of your fuses. One of them is for your door sensors. I believe on my 04 it is number 7. Also I found that once you remove the fuse you still have to press the sensor to reset it and keep it from coming on again.

Actually it is Fuse #4. not sure if you have to press the sensor again, but I don't on my 97. I installed a switch that I mounted to my OBDII port that let's me deactivate the circuit easily.

Has anyone had to replace their front rotors before their brake pads (50% wear). My rotors are warped at 25000 miles. And imagine this chrysler will not stand behind this.

The shaft that goes through the two "ears" on either side of the seat should have a small clip in a groove on the end of the shaft. Pull both of these off. Then slide the seat one direction the get the shaft out of the ear, then slide it the other way to get the other end out.
This is easier to do with the top down or off. The seat is not easy to handle by yourself, try to get someone to help.

#1158 of 1888 03 Manual Tran, Noisy Clutch and 2nd Gear Shifting
Jan 25, 2008 (7:45 am)
I have an 03 Sahara with a manual transmission. I bought it new and it now has 71500 miles. Recently, when it is first cranked up the clutch makes a squeaking noise and tension can be felt when it is depressed. This feeling and noise goes away after a driving awhile. Furthermore, yesterday morning it did not want to go into second gear up or down it made a scraping sound. The gears move very freely while stopped and it the second gear issue does loosen up after driving awhile. I did have the transmission fluid changed this morning but nothing changed. The hydrolic fluid is fine. I haven't abused the trans., or been missing any gears...Any ideas, clutch not disengaging properly, synchronizer? Is there a problem with these trans that comes up a lot?
