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???

Is your FOB in your front pocket when you're walking out there?

Ok I'm sure I'm not hitting anything when my trunk is open. I have yet to test the trunk button while indoors but I know it's not getting pressed when I'm out doors.

Further I've tested the sensitivity of both the fob button and the door button for the trunk. Neither are sensitive enough for me to accidentally press.

It's happened 3 times over a 2 week period, so it's not something I can scientifically study, I'm just 99% sure it's happening on it's own.

This is driving me nuts. I thought it was the sensitivity of the button, but it's not. I was very careful the last couple of days not to touch or put the FOB in my pockets. I still keep finding my trunk open. Yesterday it was open when I went out to the parking lot after work. I'm thinking maybe it's a frequency crossing with someone elses key buttons? Anybody found a solution yet?? This might have to be brought to the attention of GM, if they don't know already.

You shouldnt be putting people in your trunk, its not nice. And it doesnt work anymore since there is an inside trunk release.

Anybody?? Is this a defect or just an annoyance? I'm going to try using my second key FOB and see if it's just in the FOB.
