Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
With the dash board telling you the tailgate is open and since it does make noise this sounds like a fault with the tail gate latch itself.I have seen the latch fail in several cases in the past before causing this type of fault here with it needing to be replaced.
