Hello!

I noticed that there are two lights on the tailgate...on the inside, next to the handle...how do you make them turn on?? I can't seem to figure it out and I don't see anything in the manual

Thanks!! :)

You serious? They come on with your parking lights to illuminate your license plate.

No, I like to come to forums to ask random questions I know the answers to :rolleyes:

I just got the car and never stood behind it while the lights were on. Never had a car that had the license plate lights on the hatch

If you're refering to the tail lights mounted on the tail gate and you have a Euro spec sportage then they dont come prewired with bulbs. I bought a set of US spec tail lights (the ones on the tailgate) and they are a direct plug and play. Best mod after the SX grill :)
Hope this helps.

Well where else would they be? The lights for the plate will always be in close proximity to the plate itself, 99.9% of the time, right above it on both sides. Not to be a prick, but you didn't think to turn the lights on and then walk around the car?

Next thread - "there are these round rubber things at each corner of the car, but I can't turn them by hand, does anyone know how to make them move?". :lol:

No knowing where the OP is from or what vehicle she is referring to.........but the confusion from there is laughable.

the lights should come on when you turn on your headlights or parking lights they illuminate your license plate and the member is located in the state of Texas.
