Same problem. Broken wires where the wiring bundle is routed along the left trunk hinge. Found two wires crimped and broken. Jumped them and all was well.

Hi Bill,

When I had my gearbox replaced, a new switch was installed. They found that the wires were cut near where they go up into the chassis (can be fixed by removing the shifter boot).

However, the lights still don't work. Is there some other location where the wires may be damaged?
