Take the sockets back out and move the bulb around with tail lights on, and see if it makes contact. It should, do the same with license plate light.

Usually its turns on right away never had a problem with them and my back gate door wont open pressing on the switch

With electrical stuff like this it is nice to have a simple light tester, then you can check for power when ever you have a problem. One end connects to any ground, the other end you probe on the live wire, it is only 12 volts, and they are cheep enough. In you case if your shure fuses are good, and if not then there is a short some where, or just a break in the circuit in a wire or at a plugin. Your car is new enough that it should be a simple fix...

My back door hatch wont open we manuely have to open threw the in side hole wat could be cousing that problem

Just thinking here, it might be related, hatch switch circuit, but I don't know for sure, something is going on. What I do is start with my tester in the area to were there is a problem, and see if there is power before a component, to see if it is bad. If not you have to start looking up stream to at other things.
