Loud and inoperative hatch lock

On my 2003 I found out that all the doors lock except for the hatch.
It's really loud when I depress the release push button.
I can open the hatch even when all other doors are locked.

Not sure where to start looking.
The hatch clasp mechanism opens and latches the hatch.
Only opens when the button is depressed.
Doesn't pop open inappropriately.
It just doesn't lock preventing entry.

The good news is much easier to fix when can open. Will alarm go off when you open hatch when locking with remote?

The General module could be bad.

Alarm

I tried it again this morning.
It seems to be working correctly.
I think I didn't have the hatch closed enough.

The hatch lands on two adjustable pads make sure they are tight and positioned properly. Usually the hatch lights will be on if not latched.

I ordered 2 new of the better designed spring-loaded bump stops.
They are 45 dollars a side. Ouch!
Hopefully they will be a one-and-done cost

Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
^I paid around $35 a side for mine -

One of them went kaput after a year, but FCP Euro has lifetime warranty on parts ordered so not too worried - all have been fine since

Nice idea. I had invented an add on spring to kick start a lift but took it out before some ice got in there and made it crooked while slamming the glass.
