My Cruze trunk started popping open sometimes when or shortly after I unlock the doors. The dealer told me there is salt spray in the exterior rear unlock button. The only reason it opens when I unlock the doors is because the circuit is disabled as long as the doors are locked. The circuit is disabled also when the key is in the ignition.
The solution is to stop buying chevy or gm products. It is not a sticky button, it is not you hitting it accidentally, it is GM. I had a 2005 malibu and I have a 2013 cruz. I should have learned after it happened over a dozen times with the first car. Now the trunk opens in the middle of the night with no one touching the keys. Dealership's just laugh at you.

My 2002 Jetta TDI trunk door will not open either with the Pull switch lever inside the driver's side door, nor with the Key, and not even with the Hand lever inside the trunk. Every attempt to open trunk in either mode, there is an electric switch sound heard, and felt by the trunk lock machanism but the trunk still not open.

Occasionally trunk lid won't lock on my a8 2006. When closing the lid is lifted a little on right hand side before falling into place. Even if I turn the central locking on the lid OFF it will open again after a few seconds. I discovered that something is not quite right when during opening the lid is lifted a few centimeters before closing again. It does not seem to make much difference whether I try to open the lid manually, by the remote control or from inside the vehicle.


The locking mechanism either needs replacing or cleaning and lubricating but more often than not it's likely the striker pin needs readjusting to bring the lid fully shut. ... 2006 Audi A8

My 2008 Chevy Impala's trunk will not open with the remote control or the button on the dashboard. The lights will flash when I hit the remote control and I can hear the ping when I hit the dashboard button, but neither will open the trunk. What could be the problem? I have a fold down split back seat and can crawl in and use the emergency trunk release to open the trunk. Have looked at the lock and nothing appears to be wrong - what could be the problem.

My trunk spring has moved and will not raise the trunk. Once the release button is pushed the trunk opens for a few seconds and is then closed by the pull down motor. The spring will not hold up the trunk lid unless it is all the way open.

The assigned key for the trunk will not open it. 1995 Chevy Lumina. How can I fix this problem? I never had this problem before. When I insert the correct key and turn clockwise, there is resistance.
