Re: not lighting up (tailgate switch duff)

I have a T4 with the same problem (I'm assuming yours is a T4), I found the switch is built into the tailgate lock mechanism. You should be able to undo a a couple of screws and it will drop down - there should be a wire attached.

I haven't been able to fix mine yet as I can't see how to get the switch out of the lock body without damaging the whole assembly. I used a multimeter to prove the switch is faulty as opposed to the wiring so I'm just left trying to find out how to replace the switch :confused: - assuming one is available without buying a complete lock assembly.

Regards
