So just to try and clear things up here is how the lights work.
NO LED running lights. Brake and turn signal are only on the outer housings. The liftgate only has a running light that does nothing more than burn steady when you put the parking or headlights on. All signaling is done by the outer housing bulb.
Has LED running lights (that outer ring). Burns steady at all times when parking lights or headlights are on. ONLY the outer housing does brake and turn signaling same as the 2011-2013. The liftgate does nothing except have the LED running light. There is a bulb in there, but don't be fooled, it does nothing on domestic 2014-2016 WK2s.
ok i understand what you're saying now. and yeah, that is weird. seems like a wasted opportunity, but yeah james, that could be what happened. the design team did it assuming it would light up, but upon testing, caused road blindness for people following you so they killed it, heh. shrug.
