Recently I had our 18’ odyssey parked on the street and it was rear ended in a hit and run. Didn’t noticed too much damage until we drove off with it and it started beeping. Before I contact the insurance. Is there any way to fix the problem before pulling major money out of my own pocket for someone’s wrong doing. On the dash, it says the tailgate is open even when it’s closed. While driving it makes the annoying chime/beep noise and it doesn’t stop. I just want to know if there is any way to fix this or mute the chime/beep noise. Would replacing the tailgate latch help?

I assume your tailgate us latching when closed.

If you remove the small panel inside the tailgate, there is a latch or tether to reset the latch. For example, the latch was triggered by another object and closed. Then the tailgate cannot be closed because it thinks it is already closed.

You could try pulling this tether to try and manually reset the latch, not sure if this would help, but it is easy.
