Why is rear access open light on when door is closed
Rear access open warning comes on driver notice screen when door is closed. also interior lights come on
Is this a good question?
@louis1 there are some sensor in the latch assembly that could register your access as being open. It's a pretty involved task so try to reset your computer first. Disconnect the battery cable and for a few minutes keep holding the battery cables together. I prefer to leave them disconnected overnight and reattach those later. this should force your computer to relearn. If that does not work your have to take a look at the latch assembly. Last it could be that the BCM (Body Control Module) is failing, or has corrosion or loose wire on one of the connectors. Check on those as well
