Default Hatch ajar light

Maybe someone in this section can comment, suppose it could be common issue on the wagons too.

note the actuator works fine with the keyfob and the dash switch in the glovebox.

Will check the wiring and alignment of the latch and maybe spray some cleaner in the latch

Noticed this morning on my 05 Convertible the hatch ajar light is on in the dash, assume the trunk light is probably on.

I will play with the latch tonight to see if the issue is alignment of the latch.

I understand the latch has the sensor built into it to tell the BCM if the latch is shut or not.

anyone else run into this issue and if so what is the fix, did you have to replace the latch?

Not on vert but on 05 GT hardtop
Yes....
x2

Change the POWER TRUNK/HATCH LATCH ACTUATOR....

We may be going on x3. The last used one I changed worked for about a few months now randomly the hatch will pop open and dash light indicator activate. It is annoying to say the least.

Well upon leaving work the light went out, go figure.

When I arrive at work, shut the car off, opened and closed the deck lid and started the car and the light was still on.

also the latch list for 145$ and doesnt appear to be any after market ones.

time to scout the local junkyard for a spare
