2014 hatch unlocking on its own

I just got a 2014 Soul and when I am driving down the road my rear hatch will disengage and the light will come on.
Right before this happens I can hear the unlock mechanism start activating, it will run itself several times sometimes.
I am not sure what could be causing this or not sure if it is a common problem with the Soul, any advise would be helpful.

It's not normal or common.
What I can think of is a wire that gets grounded while going over bumps. In my other car with rear door, I found out that the wires can rub inside the holes at the transition between the body and door, at the body side. Peel back the rubber grommet and see how the look inside.

So it goes...
