    check your rear lift gate. is it open? if so close it. your lift gate is the glass part of your trunk access.

    i tried both and it still stays on. I cant brighten the dashboard lights without the cargo lights staying on! as if the door is open.

    Try lubing your latch and operating it by hand and see if the light goes out. The switch is usually built into the latch, and sometimes they stick. If you can get some lube inside there to unstick it it might work again. Also, these latches have two catches on them. It is possible but unlikely that when you close it you are only hitting the first catch but not the second. There fore verify that it shuts off when you close the latch by hand and if it does, you need to adjust the striker out a little so it closes properly.
