Rear hatch keeps opens while driving...


Unless you have electrical diagnostic skills , I suggest you take this to the dealer ! The lift gate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the lift gate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
The body control module (BCM) receives an input from the liftgate ajar assembly. The ajar assembly is normally open when the liftgate is fully closed. When the liftgate is opened, the ajar assembly contacts close providing a path to ground. The driver information center (DIC) illuminates the rear access open message when the gate is open. The instrument panel cluster (IPC) receives a serial data message from the BCM indicating the liftgate ajar status. If this message is displayed and the vehicle speed is greater than 8 km/h (5 mph), a chime will sound.
It could be ajar switch is bad .

While making left turns the reargate dome lite goes on and off. Also the door ajar dash light goes on at the same time. this only happens while turning left. how can I fix this.


I assume the ajar light comes on if you open the rear gate? Try to duplicate the problem with the car running and parked, and you pulling on the gate. Sounds like the door or close switch needs adjustment.

Why does our dash info say rear access open and how do you fix it?


your rear glass on your tail gate is ajar ..press the round circle button on the gate from the outside and the glass will pop open at yah close the glass a little harder since the latch is a bugger to catch i get this all time with mine

and your rear access msg will disappear and your rear windshild motor may work since the glass isnt fully closed the wiper wont run

good luck

I am unable to turn off door courtesy lights even after disconnecting lift gate ajar switch. Does new switch have to be in place to turn off lights?


I haven't picked up the part yet but it should be in tomorrow. According to a tech update from Chrysler in 1997, the rear hatch door has a door ajar switch in the handle and for, at least, the 95's and 96' switch;s were getting wet and corroding at the contacts. Unless this switch sends a signal to the computer, telling it that the door is closed, the courtesy lights stay on and drain the battery.
I hope that this part will fix the problem and I will let you know how it came out. I'll have to replace the battery also.

Door ajar light stays on


go to your local parts store and buy a can of PB BLASTER lubricant then open each door and spray the latch assembley really good then close and open the door 10 to 15 times. do this with each door. the door ajar light switch is located in the door latch assembley and cannot be seen so soak the latch assembleys really good so lube reaches the switch. these switches sometimes get stuck but this usually frees up the switch
