Default Interior lights don't work when tailgate is open?

For some reason after having some body work done to my tailgate, the interior lights will no longer turn on when i open the tailgate. But they'll turn on if i open any of the doors. So does anybody know where the interior switch on the tailgate is (the switch that turns the lights on when the tailgate is opened)?

The switch should be in the latch.

I removed the interior off of the tailgate and i haven't been able to find the switch. Except there was one wire with an attachment to connect to another wire just hanging there. But there was nothing for it to connect to. Any idea what it's for?

do you guys also get a red light on the dash to indicate that the trunk is open?

my 97 LGT didn't and neither does the 02 WRX.

oh, i forgot to mention that i have an 02 WRX wagon. i can't remember if my car has one or not. but the interior lights would go on when i opened the hatch before the body work was done. and no, i can't go back to the shop. i waited to long.

Look inside the latch,there should be a black spring loaded switch left of the center (maybe right)that wire you found should connect to it.
