    Hi Eric. I need your help. I have a 2008 Mini Cooper S (R56).The icon light for the tailgate (indicating that the hatch is open, but it is not ?) keeps coming on (on the dashboard), when I come to a stop ? Once the car is moving again, it goes off ? The lower inside latch has been replaced (with a new latch),as well as the outer assembly with the switch. Again, the icon light only comes on, as I’m coming to a stop and goes off (within seconds) after the car is in motion ? Please advise.
    Thanks
    Bob B

    Is there any correlation with the indicator being on and the brake pedal being depressed? You likely have some sort of short or rub through in a harness. You need a wiring diagram and may need to trace the circuit back and do a good visual inspection of the harnesses.
