When I open the rear liftgate on my 95' Pathfinder SE the rear dome light does not come on no matter what position the selector is in (the bulb does work though). I figure it is probably the switch since I had to replace 2 of the door switches. There is a switch under the gate for the tire carrier but I cannot see a switch for the gate itself. What turns that light on???

two places I would check are along the top and also on the bottom where the gate is locked into place.
I may be wrong though, I don't really remember where I saw it before.

I had this problem before and by fluke, I fixed it. What I did was spray some WD-40 into the latch, the piece that's in the gate. Open and closed it a few times and worked.

The switch is inside the tailgate itself, attached to the lock linkage. Pull the plastic panel off and have a look.
