    yes mate will defo be the sensor located in the tailgate. I has same fault on mine and stupid sh!T kept me up all night as alarm kept going off. Boot light would sometimes come on and sometimes go off. By sometime I mean change every couple of minutes or when I drive over a bump. Really annoying but good when fixed :D

    yes m8, look for dampness etc, try using a water displacing spray from halfords etc, maybe a temp fix, the rear washer/arm grommet fails as well on this car, so also check this
