That is 100% correct... if either end open the other lights up as well.

So if they don't light up when the front only is open, the issue most likely is the micro-switch in the front latch (common BTW). Same in reverse if rear open but light does not illuminate.

Suggest you try working it w/ some good penetrating oil (Kroil, PB Blaster, etc.) to see if it'll free up first... Otherwise you'll need to remove and check the contacts, wiring etc. Repair / replace as needed from there.

Good luck
