The switch on my new 2020 f150 does nothing. Cargo lights come when door opens. Won’t go off until doors close and truck locks. VERY frustrating. Hard to believe a new vehicle has this one faulty switch but why else is it there?

Maybe its part of auto lights. Have you tried moving the lights control switch out of AUTO position?

I just bought a 2020 F-150. I was wondering if anyone would know if the 2020 F-150 bed is wired? It has the spaces for the bed lights, but didn’t come with them.

Thanks
