Tailgate White lights, how to turn them off? (Solved)

1511 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  IBeTheBot
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 bar that goes across the tailgate is also off. See attached photos.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Are they part of the zone lighting that is stuck? You shouldn't be able to run them while you are driving, but it's worth a shot to check that out. In mine you have to turn your light switch to parking lights to use the zone lighting, but if something went wonky on yours you may want to check your zone lighting settings (on your 15" screen settings) and see if they are turned on there.
Appreciate the reply Ragnus, I did try that but it is always worth a second look. I'll take a look shortly when I go out to my truck.
reverse lights?
hope not, I was going 45 down a street at the time.
Take a look at your zone lighting under the Features tab. That should solve your issue
Zone lighting is turned off, still have the same issue.
we can close this out, went by the dealership yesterday and they took a look at it and found that the entire lighting in the back tailgate is loaded with water and caused a short, they are replacing the light bar and reverse lights under warranty work.
