Rear Lights on Tailgate won't go off after update (Solved -- water leak)

Adding to this forum to see if anyone can help.

Any assistance on pointing me towards a resource or letting me know how to shut off the white lights on the tailgate would be appreciated. I didn't seem to have this issue before the recent update, but now I can't find the location to turn these off while driving. My wife said the red light bar that goes across the tailgate is also off. See attached photos.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.


PS: I've checked Zone lighting several times and it is turned off.
I also reset the entire car back to factor settings and it is the same way.

I have a 22 Lariat 4 months old and built in the month Sept 22 . My rear light bar shows water in it by the tailgate handle. The dealer ordered a replacement part and calling me when it's in to schedule a replacement. I also notice reverse light in bar is only lit in the right corners of the lights. Do the reverse lights light across fully normally?
This is sad to have this issue on a 4-month-old expensive truck!
I really hope this new light bar doesn't collect water too! This is a safety hazzard and a short circuit waiting to happen. My rear camera is glitching now.
No battery issues thank god.
Do you have lightbar issue?
Did you get a new battery pack?
My light bar was replaced today under warranty and supposedly cost $3200. I was told seal by tailgate was cracked and likely cause of water intrusion. I have to beleive that winter freeze cycle caused this. I hope this isn't a design issue.
Wow is that damage to your interior by the dealer?
This is why I hate people touching my truck!
I got the same issue. I’ve been waiting too much for a new light. Can you tell me how long they told you you would have to wait
My light was there in a weak and installed in one day.
