It has been to dealer multiple times for this issue.
Warning appears, tailgate is never ajar.
One time warning came on, then interior lights came o, then it DID go up.
I was in line at a fast food place.
Dealer can't figure out problem.
Sensor has been replaced.
Latch has been replaced...
I am really frustrated!

Inasmuch as the sensor (are there not two of them?) and the latch has been replaced, I think I would try this as a troubleshooting procedure.

Driving around slowly, I would have someone (hey, that's what wives are for) sit in the back cargo area and using her feet, press slowly on one side of the hatch, and then the other. It really sounds like an alignment problem, possibly one of the bumpers is off. If so, it might trigger the hatch's sensory and you will know which side is triggering the fault.
