I cleaned my tailgate and tightened it up. After switching to a different key, it still opens spontaneously, but a little bit less. It opens when the car is turned off. Happened 3 times today for no reason. I wonder if its a short somewhere in the wiring up front or if i should replace the tailgate sensor thingy. arghhhh... mechanic doesn't know what to think of it either. Said could be key fob, could be a short, could be blah blah blah, but no clear this is what we need to do to fix it. Only just mess around w/ it to see what is causing it.
