Is the interior light, the one in the middle, have a switch somewhere? It doesn't turn on when keys in the ignition or when the doors are open. I checked the fuse looks fine haven't replaced the bulb. Also there appears to be a small light beside the outlet in the trunk, and that one doesn't turn on too. Are they wired in series and ones dead? Is there a switch I haven't found? Are both bulbs just dead?


Is it common for the trunk release to be finiky? Sometimes it opens no problem multiple times in a row, sometimes it won't budge at all, usually clicking unlock on the key a few times and trying again will release the trunk.
Is the latch mechanism dying or is it just how it tends to be?

Thanks guys, sorry if these questions seem dumb, new or owner, kind of grew up around GM vehicles
Welcome to the forum

All of the interior lights should be on at the same time when you open the doors or turn the switch on the light stalk on the left hand side of the steering wheel. You may just have a couple of burned out bulbs.

Are you talking about when you reach under the rear handle to press the touch-pad switch for the rear hatch? If so, then the touch-pad switch may be going out. You can check this forum for how to add a replacement switch rather than replacing the entire rear emblem to fix that issue.
