Does anyone know where exactly the door sensor is located on a Mitsubishi Van, long story short , I was rear ended in peak traffic friday night, only minor but now I keep getting the door ajar light on the dash, what's worse is I can no longer lock the doors!
I've looked everywhere only thing I can find is behind the rear bumper as below

Can someone identify this module, I'm hoping it's a sensor for the back door
( Hatch) of the van.

this is part of the keyless entry system, not the door switch, usually the door switch is built in to the latch.

Ok thanks for that, so how do I identify the sensor within the latch, the thing is the hatch seems to close properly without any problem, the handle hasn't been damaged at all?

Check out this thread. https://mitsubishiforum.com/forum/mitsubishi-m

 

Read the third post it talks about adjusting the bumber stops which I presume the door shuts up against..

I've copied the post here.

 

 

 

 

Alas, the myriad of electrical gremlins I've had with my MS made me OVERCOMPLICATE this. All I needed to remedy the door ajar light was to adjust the bumpers on the corners of the hatch so that there was less wiggle or shake in the hatch, forcing it to close tighter. Always check the obvious mechanical items first, before exploring the less likely electrical!!

Hey I spent the weekend trying a few different things, including the rubber mounts, made no difference at all, I removed the handle completely, but not sure what I check, it has a few connections going into it but is a completely sealed unit, so if it's this part as below is need to replace it.

that blue wire should be the door switch, unplugging it should get rid of the door ajar problem until you can get  a replacement latch

Hey thanks so much for that, the ding,ding,ding, it's been driving me crazy!
I can now lock it as well, Knowledge is power!
So further to this "minor bump" I have been contacted by the other drivers insurance company, so with some luck everything will be sorted soon enough.
