A couple (early) mornings ago, I was about to drive off to work when the trunk opened suddenly. I had to exit the car several times because the trunk kept opening up. When I was finally able to move the car, the trunk opened again. I pulled over, shut down the car, walked more than three feet away, then restarted the car. The trunk still opened a time or two before settling down.
It still occasionally opens by itself, usually when the car is stopped.
-I have a brand new car battery, freshly installed in the last two weeks.
-I'm not a large person and accidentally pushing the trunk release in my pocket. In fact, to test this possibility, I initially kept the key fob outside my pocket and still had the problem.
-So far as I can tell, the remote works from my office (the car is parked about 50 feet away where I can see it....lucky me!) so I'm not sure it's the keyfob battery.
I'm going to replace the battery in the key fob anyway to see if that resolves the situation. I haven't changed it since I bought the car almost 2 1/2 years ago. If not helpful, I plan a trip to the dealer.
Any other ideas? Has this happened to anyone else?

do you get swept of all nuclear material when you leave the hospital?...
when you fuel up, did you put a tiger in your tank...
Aren't you glad its still under warranty....In the end, Acura will likely replace some body based computer which will cost over 1k. We all love technology when it works for us...but when it works against us, we are ready for the days of simple automotive technology with a rotary key lock.
Now you got me thinking so I ran out to the car...
Trunk opened with the deck lid switch when the engine was off, running, and even when the car was in drive. Not too concerned about someone opening my trunk in traffic though. With the rear view camera install, the button is moved to the right side of the trunk and after 2+ years, I (sometimes) still can't find it!
The next time the problem manifests, try the valet switch in the glove box and see what happens. That is one other circuit, however, the switch that is more vulnerable is the new switch that was installed with the rear camera. You wonder what that salt spray does over time if the seal is not perfect?
