Tired of the trunk..

I live in a town FULL of car theft..we're ranked one of the highest for car theft in the U.S. and this whole trunk opening repeatedly accidentally is not helping my situation at all..im tired of coming out of the gym or school to find my trunk is open. i know theres threads on this in the past..but any updated solutions?

Tie it down?
Keep a mean dog tied up in your trunk?
Hire a midget to sit on it while your away?


Seriously though, how about be more careful with the key fob? Or how about parking your car far away so that it's out of range of the key fob so it won't open?

Wear looser pants. I have nothing on the key fob, and keep it in my pants pocket. Never once had the trunk unintentionally open.

Only way to open the trunk is with power. No key hole.

I think I did it once by accident because I hit the wrong key. How do you keep having a problem with the trunk, I have never heard of this being a problem. You are going to have to figure out what you're doing to open it all the time, that's the only fix.

I think this is mainly a problem for those of us with the M6. The A6 trunk release button is half the size of ours due to the engine start button. I have seen a few post on it but no solution yet. Someone was going to make something that forces you to push the trunk button twice to open it. Mine used to open so often I am now in the habit of checking it before I go to bed. If you keep your keys in your pocket and are being active within range of your keyless entry than you can bet the trunk will pop.

You have to crawl into the back seat and squeeze the seat back over on the driver's side and there is a keyhole to open the trunk. INConvenience store?

At least with motorized hatch release that was on the third gens, if you hit the button but didn't grab and lift the hatch in time the motor would just pull it back down and re-lock it.

Soon to be, a special relay that requires two hits to open the trunk. STAY TUNED, it will be here shortly.

That's only on the Verts I believe, and it's only there on the Verts because in the coupe, you can fold the rear seat down and gain access to the trunk and in the Vert the seats don't fold down.

I would want that, got the A6 and don't put anything in my pocket with my key and have nothing attached to it. still hit it constantly somehow, luckily i can look at it while at work and don't have a system in the back to worry about. but when it happens while raining it worries me though i think no water gets in.

I've only had it happen once and that's because I pushed the wrong button while unlocking the door.

I don't see how anyone could have it accidentally open while in their pocket. You have to hold the button in order for it to pop the trunk which requires constant pressure from another source such as other keys or a key chain.

Never done this once. What are people doing with their keys that they keep accidently pressing the trunk release button? I have one house key, a few small keychain cards, one UF keychain and a carabiner. Get looser pants or a small keychain to put with it?
