If it were my old Opel Kadett, I would've said you had to slam the hatch 
shut firmly- that car had the contacts for the rear wiper and defroster in 
the lower edge of the floor and had similar problems when the hatch wasn't 
perfectly aligned with the opening.
In your case, I'd suspect the wiring in the hatch where it goes into the 
body, or the grounding point of the motor on the hatch.

HTH, Tom
