jwight: I'll check that out, thanks!

chieftmc: I had pulled the rear panel apart when removing some weird latch thing the PO had installed. The switch was in place and when I reassembled everything, I could stick a bent paper clip in there and make the thing work, but the thing in the handle that presses on that switch is not there. An entire assembly would work, but if I can just buy that piece that fits into that recessed area, I'd be all set. Guess I can try to fabricate one...

Yes, this is the only way I know how to open the back hatch with the key in the ignition.
