Lift glass randomly opens & "Service 4WD"

So, it took me a while to figure out that I wasn't accidentally hitting the button on my key fob. The glass in the lift gate keeps randomly opening. There seems to be no pattern as of yet.
So far, I haven't taken any corrective action, since it's a nice snowy spring day here in CT, lol. My plan is to blast the electrical connections with contact cleaner and hit the latch with some lubricant. I'd swear it's an electronic issue, though, because I think the relay is actuating and telling the latch to open. If my ears aren't deceiving me, what's a good place to start looking, other than the electrical connections physically at the lift glass?
Thanks in advance! The stealership quoted me $100 just to run a diagnostic scan. I'd prefer to avoid that.
By the way, I also spoke to them about the TSB for our "Service 4WD" message, and they made it abundantly clear that it wouldn't be a free fix. Bloody highway robbery. I heard about some guys who removed a fuse, did some driving around, and then replaced the fuse, and were able to use 4-low again. I think I'll try that before I take it in to get re-flashed.
