I was going to suggest that the wiring between the body and hatch of the car was your problem, but if you have the connector unplugged for the wiring going to the hatch and the light is still on then that's not the problem. The light will only come on when the circuit is complete, according to the factory wiring manual. You have another problem, possibly a bad ground, or a short somewhere else.

On three of my escort wagons, I have had to repair the bundle of wires leaving the body and going into the hatch. One or two of the wires had cracked insulation and wires corroded through.. Its about the only place where the wires get exposed to the UV in sunlight, and being flexed each time the door opens. I spliced in new lengths of wires, along wire heat shrink tubing over the joints. Took a good bit of time to do it.
