Default Lift gate problem

I have a 2006 PT Cruiser GT Turbo....

for some reason the dash display shows the lift gate to be open even when its securely closed.... I have looked for any sensors or buttons that might be stuck or corroded, but no luck

anyone had this problem before?

thanks

Welcome to the forum.

Sometimes when my light is on notifying me that the lift gate is open even though I'm sure that I closed it, I go to the back and give it a good slam to make sure. The light always goes out after that.

I believe the sensor is built into the latch.

thanks all.......

we have had 22.5 inches of rain in 5 days .... last week... and the light came on.... we havent had any rain now for 4 days and its gone off.. so maybe the sensor got wet or something...
