Wondering if there is any way you can disable most (or any) of the interior lights when the doors are open? There's like 15 lights in these beasts! :dunno:

That would be kinda nice. When we are camping we usually leave the dry food in the back of the truck and just leave the barn doors open. The lights do eventually go out but it takes quite awhile. And, if someone opens another door to get something the wait starts all over again.
In my work truck I just disconnected the door button thingie (technical term).

Have been wondering the same thing. Been at the drive-in backed up with the barn door open, and everyone is wondering when I'm gonna finally decide to turn off all 25 of my lights so they can enjoy the movie. Takes 20 mins to turn off, then one of the kids opens up a door to get their something-or-other and we have just made a bunch more friends with the folks around us who have to be blinded by our lights!

Using the dimmer switch can't you turn them off by turning them on and then off with that?

Can't use the dimmer on mine either. Went to a car show and couldn't sit in the cargo area because it would have killed the batteries. :doh:

I'll probably just end up pulling most of the bulbs and doing a LED swap on the ones I leave.

I had to wire in a switch. Turns off lights, windows, and interior window switch lights. I them off one day and forgot about it and checked all the fuses to see why my windows didn't roll down.

Which fuse controls the interior lights? I don't see it specifically listed on the fuse list of the owner's manual? I too went to the drive in, got all comfortable in the back cargo area only to the damn interior lights stay on...UGH:mad:

Why not just put a toggle switch in line to disable the light(S) you want to turn off? Snip the ground, so there's no load on the switch and you can use any switch you want.

I wish you 'pull the fuse' characters would say the fuse # or read the manual that doesn't say the fuse #.
This guy bumps a 7 year old thread with no useful info.

Try google.
