Super77 said:My tailgate interior light was flaky, so I finally pulled the latch/switch mechanism and did a proper repair. Works perfectly now. Anyone interested in a write up? Or, has this been covered elsewhere?
Just want to reiterate the step where you short the light circuit by grounding the light wire (the one connected to the latch mechanism) to the body. Make sure the light switch is slid to the "door" position. Do this BEFORE you disassemble everything, and if the light does not come on, you probably have a problem that lies outside the latch mechanism.
