This is a whole kit that includes the cargo area bulb as well


I just ordered myself a set.
So they don't explicitly list the cargo area bulb separately (I have an all LED interior except the cargo area) so I bought the universal one, but it looks completely different from the one above so I'm not sure... The weather here has sucked too much for me to want to install it so I haven't tried yet, but hmm...

Does it stay on after tailgate is closed I tried to do it too but the led I had remained on but very dim.
Yep! Be careful with this bulb. I wouldn’t have thought to check but it does stay lit (though dim) with the hatch closed. I checked inside of car with seat down. I flipped it around in case it was a polarity issue and it doesn’t work at all the other way. The sylvania 6411 is not compatible as replacement bulb. Mine is 22 se 4motion. All other interior bulbs are led except the trunk.

Have you found a LED bulb that doesn't do this?

I have the Sylvania 6411 LED in my SEL w/4 Motion and after reading this thread I did a few experiments. I put the rear seats down and after I closed all the doors, I could see the LED continue to dimly glow, but as soon as I locked the vehicle with the key fob the light went out completely. I'm not convinced there is a problem with this particular LED

Agreed. Mine did the same thing. I'm wondering if the bulb just glows when the taillights are on.

Interesting! Thanks for checking. The incandescent bulb def does not stay lit while the led does, and I don’t always lock my doors so still not trusting it in my Taos.

Following up: I purchased this replacement lamp unit which fits the taos perfectly and is super bright. Also no dimly lit with hatch closed as I found with the sylvania 6411. $10.99

Works perfectly and does not have the glow issue that the Sylvania 6411 had. Thanks for posting!

So do you just unplug the harness from the OEM unit and plug it into this unit?
