-Just disconnect the wire that hook up to the switch. (Only on the effect door) -Or remove the switch and if you can put a spacer to bring the swtich to the outside little more. That will solve the problem.
This fix is for 2011 rear manual door.
You may experience some light turns on while driving over a bump or take a sharp turn. Your rear hatch indicator said door is opened.
The courtesy switch is located inside the rear hatch latch assembly. Nothing more but a simple thin lever line leave spring that contacts the ground pole to tell body ECU the door is opened.
The spring is so thin that it bent out of shape overtime therefore when you close the door it doesn't get pushed away from the ground pole far enough caused intermittently false door open alarm.
ALl you have to do is to remove the door latch assembly. Separate the actuator from the latch. Look into the latch you would see a copper like spring one end rests onto the ground pole. Jam your screw driver between the latch housing and spring lightly pride it away from the pole to unbend it. . Manually close the latch and look to see if it gets pushed away from the pole. If it doesn't try to unbend it again.
If you have or know how to use a ohm meter than check for continuity between spring and it housing. You should get 0.3-1.0. Ohm when the latch is open and no continuity when you closed the latch.

There should be a metal bolt or loop on the body side called a striker, check to see if it has come loose, also where the door meets the striker there is a notch on the door with a latch in the notch, check to see if the latch is open, if not, you may have to hold the door handle up (like you are opening the door) and at the same time try to open the latch in the notch on the door. If the latch in the notch is open already then try to roll it closed and see if it stays, if it doesnt then you are going to need a new door latch. Hope this helps.
You'll need to rotate the engine only in a clockwise direction, to get it to TDC on the compression stroke. When the engine is on the compression stroke, both valves to that cylinder are closed completely.
You can hold your finger over the #1plug hole with the plug removed, and as the engine is turned, you will notice pressure building, use a long rubber hose or something you won't drop into the cylinder, to put into the cylinder to feel the piston as it comes up to the very top. If you go past it, rotate the crankshaft 2 full times (almost) to get back to the TDC position.
There is also a mark on the crank pulley that will tell you when you reach TDC. Identifying the compression makes sure it's on the compression stroke, not the exhaust stroke. The engine turns 2 full turns for one turn of the camshaft.
Once you have TDC on the engine, rotate the distributor in your hand, to where the rotor will be pointing at the #1 position where it would send spark to the #1 spark plug wire & plug. Install and adjust as necessary to get the best idle, then hook up your timing light to set it to the factory specs. Good luck!
since the door is open,, hold the handle in the open position and try and move the little hook looking latch , it may have just moved into the closed position , if you can move it to the open position, then your home free
I just replaced this on my 95. Past the hole in the door there should be a up-side down L shaped metal pole, but that pole can get lost inside the door and you have to search around with maybe a coat hanger to fish it into place. Once you find it grab it with a needle nose pliers and get the new handle at the same time, then pry and hook the L shape in to the eye-let of the new door handle. Once you have hooked the handle to the metal L pole, then you have 2 metal shoulder poles to slide into the hinging part of the new handle.
