When you have cabling passing through a rubber boot from the body to the tailgate of a vehicle, the continual flexing of the wiring whilst opening and closing the tailgate can cause some of the wires in the cabling to break. Pull back the boot on your tailgate and if you find any of the wires seperated simply splice them back together. Same colour to same colour of course.
