My Jeep thinks liftgate is always open, wth

hey guys, if anybody can help me with something that would be great...

got something weird going on with my jeep as of yesterday. i lock my car, and at random, my jeep thinks the liftgate is open and the alarm starts to go off. only way to turn off the alarm is to unlock the car. if the car is unlocked and it thinks liftgate it open, no problems. dunno why, any ideas?

I have seen this before a couple times. Its the hatch latch. One member was able to bend the latch just so slightly and one had to replace the latch.

Re: My Jeep thinks liftgate is always open, wth

ok, i have been messing with the rear window latch as well as the trunk latch because at first either one would fix the problem temporarily.

then about an hr or so into it being locked i would hear it go off

it is the window latch we are talking about right?

I had the same problem but all I had to do it adjust the latch sensor and it stop but it you pull on the hatch then it would say it was open so I got a little piece of flat rubber and then it worked out the springs on the latch sensor or the deal that push on the latch sensor are worn out it you want dome pic or need any help other then that msg me
