Probably broken wire in the harness going to the tail gate, blue/yellow wire. There is a repair harness availible. If this is the only electrical problem you have associated with the tail gate, I would try to find the break and splice it or jump around it as Ed recommended.
I rewired my '92 at 71K miles, '93 is still not giving me a problem at 178K.-

'92 & '93 525iT

My right side back-up light is not working. I tried a new bulb, and traded left and right sockets (the socket you can pull out). It still does not work. It's a '93 525iT. Only thing I can think of is that the contacts inside the light assembly are bad? Any other ideas?
