I have been having problems with the illuminated dash (tailgate control buttons) and the map lights.

Dash lights intermittently won't illuminate for a minute or two then all of a sudden start working.
Map lights won't illuminate when pressed.

Both problems started at the same time. Is this a setting or something else going on?

My map lights do this if the dome/door/light switch is in the Off position.

No it had nothing to do with the switch. Husband checked fuses. They were fine. Then he took the covers off of the lights. Both light bulbs needed to be jiggled back into place. I can't figure out why they would need to be repositioned as my car has only been driven 1500 miles over the last year. I also have the lower dash lights (where the control buttons for the back hatch are located). These lights will be off for no reason where you can't see the buttons illuminated. Then all of a sudden they turn back on after one or two minutes. Both problems just don't make sense.
