Would not be to tough to connect them to an upfitter switch. Let me know if you want to do it...I will be glad to help.

I have found that describing these things in this format can be quite tedious with messages back and forth trying to explain things.

PM me and I will send you my contact information then you can give me a call and I can explain what needs done.

Sounds like a fuse...Do the other lights tied to the door (dome lights, running board lights, etc.) come on when you open the door? If they do (especially the running board lights) then it is probably not a fuse. These lights are powered by a transistor in the SmartJunction (fuse) box. If the fuses are good and the lights are good, then maybe the transistor is shot.

Oh, I did not realize that the third brake light was also out. That makes me think it might be a connector. There is a single connector for both the cargo lights and the third brake light. I am not sure what is the best way to get to that connector. You may be able to get to it simply by removing the lens for the thrid brake light/cargo lights. You may also have to drop the headline to get to it.
