Trunk Keeps Opening Itself

My trunk keeps opening itself, randomly. It has happened a couple times now, and my key fob is not in there. Have no clue why, anyone else had this happen?

When I had knee surgery a few months ago, I was getting into my car differently and found that on many occasions, I had hit the trunk release button while getting in. Not sure where/how your situation is happening.

No sure what you mean about the fob location but I occasion open my truck with a butt release on the fob button when I sit down.

I just meant that the trunk isnít opening because the fob was inside. I still havenít figured it out, maybe I am accidentally hitting the button, idk.

My 2013 Accord EXL used to have that problem - the trunk would pop open while I was driving on occasion.

Try turning off the trunk release using the switch in the glovebox until you get it checked by a dealer. That should kill any accidental button push open of the trunk. If it still opens then it might be something with the latch.

Iím not an expert on the matter, but in the movies, they often tie them up BEFORE they put them in the trunk.

It's a combination of the button's location and its hair trigger activation. It's too easy to hit with a knee when getting into the vehicle. They should have made it a press and hold type switch.
