Trunk won't open?

The trunk button on the door will not open the trunk when sitting a Idle.
I drop my daughter off at school and her stuff (backpack, violin case) is in the trunk.

My old 2010 SS did (open the trunk when sitting at idle), but not the ZL1 - is this an irrevocable safety feature or can I change a setting in Config?

I've had to turn off the car to open the trunk - this is obviously annoying.

Otherwise, I'll have to accommodate by putting her stuff in the back seat.

Closs is right. Pull up the parking brake and the trunk should open...at least on my 2012 manual. Took me awhile to figure that one out!

Also, if my DRLs are on, pulling up the parking brake turns turns off the DRLs...go figure.

I noticed this too. Came from 2010 to 2013 Camaro.

Not a new feature. Even third gens and fourth gens are made this way. Auto must in park or manual the e-brake must be on. So you can't pop the trunk (or hatch in older cars) while rolling down the road.

We are checking into this for you. If you could please monitor the thread, I should be able to get more information for you on this!

My 2012 does the same. It won't let you pop the trunk unless you then the car off.

I haven't tried the parking brake yet but sounds like that works for all in this situation.
