    Anyone know how to kill the warning bell and dash light that indicates
    that the rear hatch is open, when it is definitely not?

    What you have is a broken wire in the tailgate harness you need to
    unplug the connector located in the L/R D post then gently remove the
    connector then with a razor carefully cut the black covering away you
    will find @ least one broken wire remove the damaged section of wire
    solder a new section in place tape reinstall

    Thanks for your reply. "L/R D post" - does this mean Left Rear Door
    post? Is that the post where the LR door hinges are located? I see
    what looks like a corrugated rubber covered piece between the post and
    the LR door that may have wiring in it. But it goes to the LR door,
    not the rear hatch door.

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    I think he means "Left or right D post - whichever one contains the harness"

    The A posts are at the front, either side of the windscreen, B and C posts
    behind the front and rear doors, and D posts right at the back.
