You need to find out why you're not getting power to the lights.

  1. Check fuses
  2. Check that the panel is reinstalled properly and grounded correctly
  3. Check the wiring to the bulbs is connected
  4. check the wiring from the lights switch is connected
If all other lighting works then it's likely that the connection to the rear panel lights is broken or disconnected, as these lights are on the same circuit as the rest of the lighting when lights are turned on.
Hop this helps.

Have you checked to see if you have power to the bulbs?A cheap test probe/light will tell you wether its a power supply issue or wether the problem is at the lights.Usualy your problem is simply blown bulb/s.Have you replaced it/them to check?Good luck with it and if you need more let me know

A spark came from interior fuse/relay panel. After that nothing seem to be working on the interior fuse/relay panel. I check all of the fuses, and all seem to be in working order.. What else could be

First you need to remove whatever you added to the fuse panel, then check the mega fuse in the underhood fuse panel, you may have blown that. Below is a picture of its location. If it is OK, you will need to have a professional diagnose your electrical system.

My power window and locks are not working,would this be caused by a blown fuse and which one(the #)

{: ) Check the DDM fuse10amp at the rear fuseblock. If okay, you need to pry and remove the driver door switch, but dont remove the connectors. Using a test light, backprobe on the two thick orange wires for presence of voltage. The testlamp should light, otherwise it is a wiring problem. Also check the black wire if its giving a good ground.
If everything seemed okay, it could be that the driver door switch is not communicating and need to be reprogrammed. If this doesn't work, then your driver switch has a problem.

Replace rear wiper motor

In taking the rear wiper arm off, it seems to corrode onto the motor drive hub or axle. Shooting some lubricant as best you can into the area and work the arm with the clip up as best you can, it will eventually work itself off. Lift the tailgate and start at the top plastic pieces, they just pull off, followed by the sides. When you get to the main plastic pane, remove the screws in the handle lift and bottom screws. I f you have courtesy lights, pop them out and disconnect. If you have a rear brake light, remove that cover as well. Once all screws are removed, that panel will just pull off as well. With that removed, the wiper motor is visible, and three screws and the wiring are all that needs to be removed.
The rear wiper can also be removed by drilling a 3/16 hole in the center where it attaches and use a faucet handle puller, it will pull it right off. you can fill the hole with epoxy putty or spot putty after reinstalling it.

try this but be careful..

inside the doorway will be contact that must be clean and unobstructed to work. Check it and see if something got caught in it. Assuming it is not faullty, this should correct the problem. It is likely that the false sensing will keep the wiper from working since it shouldn't be on with the door open. If the sensor looks okay, you should have it tested to see if it is defective.
