rear hatch light ajar,light staying on in dash will not go out on 1990 Honda Civic Si

the rear hatch light ajar light in dash will not go out even though the hatch is locked and closed....any suggestions

Asked by for the 1990 Honda Civic Si
Most likely it is a mis-adjusted or defective 'hatch closed' switch. It will be in or near the hatch latching mechanism.
thanks i will have a look there .just started out of the blue....worked fine for years
