Rear hatch keeps opens while driving...
Unless you have electrical diagnostic skills , I suggest you take this to the dealer ! The lift gate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the lift gate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
The body control module (BCM) receives an input from the liftgate ajar assembly. The ajar assembly is normally open when the liftgate is fully closed. When the liftgate is opened, the ajar assembly contacts close providing a path to ground. The driver information center (DIC) illuminates the rear access open message when the gate is open. The instrument panel cluster (IPC) receives a serial data message from the BCM indicating the liftgate ajar status. If this message is displayed and the vehicle speed is greater than 8 km/h (5 mph), a chime will sound.
It could be ajar switch is bad .

Error code p062b 2012 equinox
Had the same problem on our 2012 Equinox today. Threw codes P026B and P062F. Appears to be a bad battery. Replaced battery and all seems ok now...keeping fingers crossed. My suspicion is that the faulty, dying battery caused a low voltage situation in the injector control module and thus those errors. Will see if the check engine light returns in the next 48 hours.

Trouble opening lift gate in 2012 Equinox computer saying rear door open
That lift gate has a control module that controls the operation.
It communicates with the latch and other body modules
If the info display is indicating it is open when you know it is indeed shut.....I would suspect the latch assembly. There is a micro switch in the latch that informs the module when the gate is closed.
A scanner is actually the best most efficient way to diagnose this issue. A good independent garage should be able to scan for you for a fee. It will be worth the fee. Also...the lift assist struts are problematic on this particular vehicle. They assist in opening and keeping the lift-gate open.
