Default Liftgate Ajar

I'm getting this message on my display while I'm driving and the interior lights stay on even though the hatch is fully closed. Does anyone know where the liftgate actuator and sensor is?

Still looking for help on this issue. My alarms goes off if I lock the doors because it thinks the lift gate is open.

I looked around and don't see any sensor or actuator in an obvious place. It looks like maybe the car knows the lift gate is shut by the latch, dunno.

Sorry you didn't get an answer yet. Yes, it does look like the sensor is built into the lock/latch itself. Once in awhile, even though I shut my hatch I get the light and what I do is SLAM it shut and it usually takes care of the problem.

Cool Re: Liftgate Ajar

Sorry Wishbone.
No help here either. All I have had to do is what Crewzin already added.
If under warranty, I would let the stealer deal with it.

I was able to get this fixed today thanks to the warmer weather. What I did was pop off the plastic cover near the floor board that covers the metal "loop". From there I was able to loosen 2 hex head bolts and move that assembly back so it shuts tighter. Works fine now.
