Would like to remove the dashboard light for the tailgate-open sensor in my van (Kia Pregio) because it stays on even with the key removed from the vehicle.
There's no fuse for it, so I put a piece of duct tape over the sensor but it keeps falling off. I'd like to hard wire the wires coming from the sensor so it does not draw on the battery anymore. Can I simply disconnect them? I'm not sure if open circuit = light on or closed circuit = light on. I guess closed but I thought I'd look to ask somebody before I did something permanent.
