Hello all, 1st time poster here. Hoping for some help with my middle and cargo lights. Front courtesy/map light works fine, but no juice to 2 rear lights. Checked with test light, checked bulbs, and ground, all good. Is there a relay that controls just these 2 lights? I read about gem module being bad? Brought to dealer and after an hour they told me things I already knew, but cost me 100 bucks! It is a 2008 explorer xlt. Thanks in advance!:)

Ok. I wonder, after an hour of check-up at dealer, why they didn't told you what was wrong?

They didn't tell me what was wrong because they didn't know. I didn't want to keep there any longer and rack up a big bill.

I have same problem, it's most likely SJB (Smart Junction Box), cost $ 700 part, labor, and reprograming.
