2000 Mercury Cougar 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles
Just had a rear hatch put on after a rear end collision by a junk yard mechanic. He got the hatch on OK. It closes soundly and tight. The light on the inside of the trunk cavity goes off when it is closed but when the key is on and I'm driving the chime sounds as if a door is open. All doors are closed. This trouble only started after the old hatch was removed and replaced. Apparently there are two sensors in that hatch somewhere or the guy did not wire up the new hatch correctly. The sensor/switch at the latch works because with the hatch open the little side light goes out when I fake the latch closed by pressing down on the lock. Can you tell me where to look next?
have the same problem?
