Trunk Keeps Opening

At random, I'll go outside to my car and the trunk will be open (not all the way, but unlocked). The remote seems to be working fine, and when it’s not open,I have to put normal pressure on the button to open it. WTF? Is anyone else having this problem?

I've noticed this too, and I can't figure out if I'm actually pushing something or if it's opening by itself.

You might try laying your keys on a desk/counter in your house or at work, where they won't be touched.... then go out & check it periodically to see if it's opened. That should tell you if it's you touching the remove without knowing it or if there's something wrong all together.

Had that problem all the time with my 2000 Monte Carlo. Just a slight touch in the pocket would unlock the trunk.
Now, my '06 you have to hold the trunk button down several seconds to activate it. Why would they not keep the delay???
