Unhappy Rear Tailgate Lock

Started having problems with rear tailgate activating itself and setting alarm off, also when driving along. Bit worrying as have dogs in the rear and they could push gate up. Any ideas to solution or the cause would be appreciated. Thanks.

Check the wiring harness for the lift gate. It located at the top of the liftgate. You probably have some wires that are exposed and shorting causing the electric gate to release.
