I had a simular issue and it ended up being the power lock switch was stuck on my liftgate. also could be the linkage is jammed/bent or the little plastic keepers that hold it together came apart

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv

I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.

2000 model crv even when tail gate is closed warning light is on

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

The sensor of the tail gate can be faulty that's why it says open even though it's secured. I strongly suggest that you have the sensor replaced. You can find this inside the lid.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

If you remove the handle that opens the tail gate you will see two rods connecting to it. Each one goes to the latches that open at each side of the gate. Lube the latches up with a good grade of lithium grease after they soak for one day with WD40. They may work as good as new again if the rods are not bent out of shape. The rods are very inexpensive to replace also

Try changing the liftgate latch. If you have power liftgate, that is the usual fault by experience. There is also possibility for the other associated components to fail, but they are more costly. You can go for these repair while the gate is not yet stuck closed, so you can easily remove the trim panel. However, I still suggest a preliminary check up on the circuits. The fuses, switches, modules, codes, etc. If the liftgate seems to be operational, except for the proper closing and initial opening, its most likely the latch. I just hope we get lucky on that. Okay, there? goodluck. : )

Tail gate problem

I believe there are one or more service bulletins out on the tail gate issue, so you are not alone. I have seen a vehicle with this issue. The bullitin states adjust latch/ do not replace. We tried to adjust 4 times and ended up installing a new latch to remedy.
