Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 29+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

Did you reopen the gate and glass and attempt to close it again to see if the lamps go out?

Did you check the wiring in the gate opening for damage or any problems? ( the wires should be inside a rubber boot that leads from the body to the gate)

Keep me posted...

Thank you,
