Question about Cars & Trucks
Not much. Looked at the gate switch and wires through the interior access hatch. Removed fuse to keep battery from going dead.
The lift gate activates a contact. This contact must be integrated in the frame of the lift gate. The contact does not switch.
Either it has to be adjusted (mechanical in right position) or it is defective, then you have to replace it.

I have heard there is a door sensor relay that can cause this problem when it goes bad, however i have not been able to locate this relay.
What i did do to better the situation is pull fuse 31 (15amp) out of the fuse pannel under the driver side dash and this will disable all of the interior lights and nothing else. I know this does not fix anything but at least i dont get dead batterys anymore.

SOURCE: Interior lights won't go off.
Check the intensity switch. If it is not that push the buttons on the back passenger lights to see if they will "click" and turn off. If not you have the same prob as me. The "L" shaped tabs for the buttons get weak an you cannot turn them off. I drilled holes in mine and saftied with safety wire. Aviation type wire. They work awesome now.

You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.
