Umm i have a 93 and when i open my back doors and hatch the dome light turn on.

So if your dome light dont turn on when your open those doors your door jam switches are bad.

The switch is inside the rear hatch. Works off of the lock mechanism.

My door jam switches for my rear door are on the inside of the door jam.

If you dont have door jame switches for some reason do you have a base model maybe some models didnt get them but that doesnt make much sense.
