Was just wondering if anyone has actually seen this light functioning? Not sure if mine is busted but I’ve never seen it turn on.

I think it is a camera for seeing the hitch ball when hooking up a trailer

There are two cameras on the tailgate one is your back up camera the other is your hitch view camera if you don't have that option then its just a dummy cover with no camera.

One camera, uses software toi change angle of view.

 

It's not a dummy.....it is an LED light and only illuminates when dark with the bed lighting when you use the dash switch......purpose is to light up the tailgate button release.

It comes on with the cargo lights and shines down on the hitch area for connecting/ disconnecting trailer.

Hmmm I think mine might be broken, it does not come on with the rest of the cargo lights , looks like there is condensation buildup inside.
