SOURCE: TAILGATE OPEN WARNING LIGHT IS ON WHEN TAILGATE IS CLOSED

Sound like your tail gate switch has failed or maybe a fuse

I would take these actions :

1. Check fuses
2. Replace Tailgate switch
3. Take to Auto electrician as it could be a short in your wiring harness.

Hope this helps

Tailgate warning stays on when it is shut


The switch may be jammed or broken. Look around the inside of the tailgate (near the seals) for the little push-in switch or button and check by pressing it with your finger, it should spring in/out freely.

My tailgate sensor light wont go off. I have opened and closed my tailgate and tailgate window but the warning light will not go off which is cause all the dome lights to stay on in the jeep. please help


Even if the tailgate locks properly there may be something blocking the light switch. Happened to me after carting firewood and the trunk had lots of wood chips and sawdust. I cleaned it out with a paint brush and vacuum and the light was fine - but it did take a couple of tries!.

Tailgate failure on honda accord tourer 2004


Maybe a little late here but i have a fix for this after turning down my dealers generous offer of a 750gbp fix i did some extensive googling and found this.... With your ignition on open the tailgate using the catch inside then turn off ignition and disconnect the battery for a minute. Reconect the battery and turn on ignition and let the warning lights go through their cycle. With the ignition still on shut the tailgate and hey Presto should be as good as new.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.


I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

Even when doors and tailgate shut the door warning


with the door open push the door switch and tailgate switch closed manually. if the warning stays on, replace the switch. if it stops, adjust the switch to make sure the door or tailgate pushes it down far enough.

Motor car electrical fault


ok....the problem is the rear washer pipe has blown of in the tailgate where it connects to the motor,it happens when you operate the rear washer when it is frozen.the connection is fairly weak and cant cope with pressure build up.in both cases you need to remove the tailgate trim,reconect the pipe and dry out the catch as that has a micro switch in it that operates the warning light for tailgate open and the alarm.it is shorted out with water hence the false alarming and warning light on........if you pop the bonnet but dont open it that will stop alarm from arming as temp fix,but dont forget to shut it before you drive off .hope this helps,please rate this ,thx
