2006 SR5 Rear Hatch Door Ajar Problem

I keep getting a light on my dash that I have a door ajar. I've traced it to the rear hatch. The light flashes off and on, especially when I hit a bump or take a curve. It doesn't allow me to use the key fob to lock the doors and randomly sets off my alarm, usually at 3 in the morning. I replaced the actuator about 2 months ago. We recently had a snow storm and just after this is when my problem started. I have taken the rear hatch apart numerous times and checked the connections and cant find the problem. i am wondering if it is grounded on the frame somewhere and maybe has a break in the wiring that is causing the problem. Any help in locating the ground wire or any suggestions in a remedy are greatly appreciated. Thanks
