89 Cavalier Wagon Tailgate Problem

The tailgate has and electric open in the glove box. The problem is that while driving down the road the tailgate will open to the open safty position. In order to close it you must push the button in the
glove box. Tried to adjust, no help. If it were the electric open, and it intermittently shorted, it seems that it would not open to the safty open possition, but would open all the way. Has this happened to anyone. It use to open when I go over rough road, now it opens just driving normal. Seems to be more sensitive now. Everything else is working great. (40K )

Is there anything inside the glove box that might be pushing agains't the switch ?
Remove the glove box assebly & see if the isulation on the wires on the back of the switch are cracked. They may be rubbing something metal behind the dash triggering contact to trip the tailgate opener .
Good Luck
