    Trunk opening on its own

    I have an appointment set up to take care of a lot of electronic gremlins Monday morning. Memory seats, phone disconnecting, pandora freezing, back up cam stay on, cue freezing, back up sensors locking the car from moving, stumble at idle, knocking in hvac, and the trunk opening by itself. The trunk has me concerned the most. 5 times now I've come out to my car in a parking lot and the trunk is wide open... Just curious if anyone else is having this issue?

    Happened twice to me so far, maybe the fob is extra sensitive. Good thing there's no pass through in the back seat

    It's happened twice to me. I started putting my fob in my jacket pocket instead of my pants and it hasn't done it since, so I assumed it was me.

    I though it was the same, so I started keeping the fob in my jacket pocket as well. It happened still.

    I've had this happen to me 3-4 times and I swear I never touched the button but it's been a couple of weeks since the last incident. Luckily I haven't kept anything really important inside.

    Wow I thought I was just crazy on the trunk opening itself. I've had that happen a few times now.

    Same here, happened a few times. Usually its when in my back pants pocket and I think I accidentaly triggered it. Has not happened in along time, but I keep it in jacket pockets typically.

    I've gotten this a couple times too, though I only notice when I start the car and it pops up the alert. I'm almost certain this is due to accidental button pushes in my pocket--it doesn't happen when I position the key fob "just so". Even so, it would be nice to have a longer delay on the button so that it's harder to accidentally press.

    This happened to me also. I found that if I put my fob in a pocket with other things that the button is very easy to press. It happened when I put the fob in my pocket with my money clip. Now I keep the fob away from objects in my pocket and it never happens anymore. The reason I figure its me is my wife is the one who drives the car most of the time and she keeps here fob protected in her purse. It has never happened to her but it has happened a few times to me.
