The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

Various electrical components under the front carpet/rubber mat may become damaged if excess water is used to clean the rear cargo area.
