Had that happen the other night.

qbert48 06-28-2009 07:13 AM

does it fix its self?

franknbeans 06-28-2009 07:22 AM

try: Fold down the back seats and pull the trunk release from inside the trunk.. shut trunk again and see if that fixes it.

My trunk does it as well.. I found if you push down on the center of the spoiler and hit the button again it opens

jachevy28 06-28-2009 08:09 AM

It's common it seems...have to make sure the trunk is really closed tight and latched good to begin with or else it does this.

FNKNSTN 06-28-2009 08:56 AM

I've had that happen to me.

I was hoping that I was just imagining things...

Yep... worked for me

I think you need to have them readjust the latch components. There might be screws back there. Just guessing. Not a big deal covered by warranty.

But that should not be the fix, when I press the button, my trunk should open on it's own and it doesn't, not everytime anyway.

It did seem to improve if I shut my trunk harder the previous time.

Still going to have it checked out this week.

The answer is....... take to the dealer and show them the issue and let them fix it right! After all.... it's still under warranty!

tjbusa 06-29-2009 07:18 AM

If you guys are pushing down on the trunk lid and it works, take it to the service dept and let them adjust the latch. I wouldn't ever push on the spoiler.

Coop 2010 06-29-2009 07:24 AM

Just adjust the rubber
 
bumpers on either side to make a little more pressure on the trunk lid.

No worth taking to the dealer...

tjbusa 06-29-2009 07:33 AM

true that, I wish I had my car so I could see for myself. But yes, if its got bumpers and little down turn is the answer. If you don't feel comfortable, let the service dept do it.

Coop 2010 06-29-2009 08:28 AM

ITS UP TURN you want more force on the lid... It takes 5 seconds. I don't have time to deal with the dealer to turn a knob for me..I guess they could teach me how to start my car also since I was going to be there....

I have the same problem and this is the solution as well ... I'm guessing there is an adjustment that the dealer can make to fix this?

This did the trick for me ... I did about 1.5 turns (UP) to both and it seems to have resolved the problem (2 tries no issues).

BTW .. thanks Coop!

Coop 2010 07-01-2009 08:57 AM

No problem see you at the next gathering...

i agree this seems to be the trick it hasn't happened again thanks

I had that trunk release problem too but I fixed it by adjusting the rubber trunk lid adjusters.
Seems that if the lid comes down to high, there is too much pressure on the release mechanism and it just clicks. Lowering the lid will relieve the pressure on the mechanism and it should work fine. Mine hasnt gotten stuck since.
