Replies and fixes

You may have two different faults . There could be a faulty boot lock / switch or the wiring at top of tailgate in rubber sheath may be damaged / broken . The door lights are operated by micro switches also which are part of the lock assembly and often stick causing this . Spraying WD into locks / linkage often cures this but really need taking off door trims to gain proper access.
