    Quick Question!

    Does the interior lights come on when the tail gate is opened? Assuming all 4 doors are closed.

    Thank you for the reply. I have an '02 KJ with an electrical fault, and am trying to locate the source of it.

    I just ran and checked real quick to make sure of some things.

    My interior lights come on when I pull the rear gate handle only to the first click (opening just the glass) All lights come on, not just cargo area.

    Thanks again for this. I am unable to locate any problems with any wires, and it seems the BCM is to blame for all of the troubles I have been having. This is only speculative though, and a new BCM costs $876.00. Guess I will look for one in the wreck yard. Hopefully it wont be too expensive there.

    We have an '04 Sport.
    When I use the key fob to unlock the doors all the interior lights turn on.
    If I leave the Jeep unlocked and open the tail gate the lights turn on as well.

    Depends on whether or not you have pressed the light in the cargo area. If you press it the lights will not come on when you open the gate. Mine currently do not come on.

    Ours turns on weather I manually press the switch to on then off.
    Close up the Jeep, lock with the key fob, then I pop the rear glass only and everything inside lights up.
    If, I just unlock the Jeep with the key fob and then fully pull the tail gate handle; opening the glass first, then the tail gate, same thing, interior lights up!
