Customer Question
Hi, I have a 2006 GX470...
Hi,
I have a 2006 GX470. The interior lights would periodically come on while driving. I narrowed it down to the back door and changed the plunger style switch that activates upon opening. That fixed the interior light issue. A few weeks later, I'm getting a message from the dash saying the back door is open and reverse camera will not work due to the open door. The door is closed so I'm not sure what's causing this. Your thoughts?
