Hatchback sensor continues to go off even when hatchback is close

The Hatchback sensor continues to ping even when it is closed. Sometimes it even goes off after the car is mobile and has been going for a distance; the sensor will begin to ping. The dumb thing is a pain.

    There is a switch either around the door frame or in the latch. I'll look up the location and wire color and repost. You can likely just cut the wire. It is either that or replace the switch.

Is this a hatchback? check the wiring, where it goes from the tailgate to the vehicle body, passed experience, continual opening and closing the tailgate causes the wiring to flex and break. The wiring is usually in a rubber sleeve.

did you try spraying the door latch and locks with WD 40? I did on my ford expo. I sprayed each and every door, including the hatchback. Then, I opened and closed them several times. Found out the driver rear door was sticking due to dirt.
