Fuse removal while working on truck's interior

Is there a fuse that I can remove to keep the interior lights from being on while I rewire my mirrors? Last time I did it I killed the battery cause the doors were open the whole time. TIA.

Probably. Here's a bump...but having your interior lights on shouldn't be killing your battery. I have left my radio on pretty much all day with the doors open and haven't had any problems. Also, I think the lights turn off after a certain amount of time anyways.

They will turn off after a while, way before they run the batteries down. But if you really want to turn them off easily take a screw driver and push the latch closed as if it was pushed by the striker it will think the door is closed. Just remember to pull the handle like ur opening it before you slam it shut!

Yeah and interior lights really shouldn't be killing your batteries. If it's killing your battery then it might be time for new batteries.
