I've seen some posts about people replacing the button on their trunk lid because it had become corroded and failed. Serious enough corrosion could cause a short circuit and open the trunk unintentionally.
I'll give that shot but I don't think that's my problem. Key is sitting in my locker at work and trunk has opened 3 times so far in past couple hours.I will say the random opening of the trunk is actually a touchy FOB. Probably have the FOB in your pocket and sit down and when you come out, the trunk is open. I had the same problem and to resolve this, I installed a 2 shot trunk release. Once installed the trunk will no longer randomly open on you. I will take you hitting the open button 2 times for the trunk to release. I installed and no more problem. Do a search on this forum and you will find many people have encountered the same problem. All you do is replace a relay in the fuse block that requires 2 "hits" to open the trunk.
This is for the trunk opening on it's own, Was a 2 shot relay but February 2014 It became a press and hold for a bit to open on the 14's and beyond.#PI0924A Intermittent Unwanted Trunk Opening While Vehicle is Parked......Document ID 3745343.
Cars built before the 14 model year (I believe February 2014) got a new revised "Waterproof" exterior trunk button. Not sure why they weren't water proof before? My new button works so long as it doesn't get wet and freeze like today.#PI0492A: Intermittent Unwanted Trunk Opening or Trunk Inoperative, possible DTC B3618.....Document ID: 2760539.
