Put Jeep GC in reverse and Cargo lights turn on??

So I just bought a used 2012 JGC Overland Summit. When I put it in reverse, the two back cargo lamps turn on making it almost impossible to see out of my rear window. Has anyone else encountered this? Is it a programable setting or does it have to do with the wiring. It's so bad that I'm debating on removing the bulbs.

Any help on this would be great!
Thanks!!

Has the Jeep ever been repaired from an accident?

I'm asking because a friend of mine bought a used Liberty and he always complained about water on his rear head board. Turns out the vehicle had the rear end repaired and they forgot to replace the rear window washer line so it just sprayed all over the headboard whenever he triggered it. So it could be a shorty wiring job on the rear for you.

According to the CarFax report my GC has no history of a wreck reported. That is about all i know.


No report on re-wiring the cargo lamps. Thanks for trying to help though. I have a appointment in a few days with the dealership. I'll follow up and tell you what they found.

Update: When I took it into the Dealership they said it was a electrical issue in the back where a line was not properly grounded. They would need to follow the lines to find where the issue was happening. This also was the reason why my rear camera was not displaying an image. They fixed both issues but it ended up costing around $500 for the diagnostics and labor to fix it.
