Rear Hatch Problems

Here's a puzzle. I have a 2002 Rendezvous and the rear hatch will just open on its own -- happens quite a lot. It hasn't done it while I've been driving, but it can and will do it at any possible inconvenient time, like when I park, take out the key, and try to walk away -- the lights will flash and the horn will honk -- like it's detecting a possible theft. And sure enough, the rear hatch will have unlocked itself.Will do it when I come back to the car and push the 'unlock' on the remote. Really annoying. Has it happened to anybody else? Does someone have an answer besides trying to sell it as is? Troubled in Cody, WY

On occation rear hatch door will show up as "Ajar". No one has opened the hatch, but I have notice a noise from the back when I am driving and then the light will come on telling me the hatch door is ajar. The door does not open all the way. Just enough to cause the light to come on. I have a 2004

Just bought a used 06 RDV (had it one week so far)and had that happened yesterday to me. I assumed I didn't close it all the way but it happened after being on the highway for 15 minutes so I assumed it should have said "rear hatch adjar" right away. I'll have to keep an eye on this to see if it was a fluke or now an issue.

anyone figure out the rear hatch problem?
I have an 04 RDV and every once and a while it will just open on its own.
Also had to replace both front wheel bearings at same time at 65000 kms. 5000kms out of warrenty and GM said nothing they could do about it. Any help would be great

There was a recall on the latch that cause the hatch to open or rattle excessively. Had mine changed free out of warranty because of the recall.

Neither the touch pad or remote lock will unlock the back hatch of my 2005 Ren. Could it be a fuse or do I need to take it to the dealership?

I have a 2006 model I found that it is the exterior switch on the hatch part # 10322831 $16.00 at Amazon Prime that is the problem. You have to take off interior handle and interior panels after interior handle is off pull off the panel. Two interior 1/4inch nuts inside releases exterior handle. Two exterior screws releases the switch.
