02 impala trunk opens when i turn car off and battery light comes on occasionally

Sometimes when I turn my car off the trunk pops open and occasionally when i have the car turned to on or ac the message light appears saying the trunk is open when its not. Also my door chimes are not chiming correctly such as when the key is in the ignition and door is open it wont always chime. And recently when i start driving the battery light turns on and the service vehicle light turns on although i did get the battery and the alternator checked and both seem to be in good condition....Any suggestions?

It could be the back up lights since you didn't say if you check them. or a reverse switch. as for your trunk lid not poping open with switch it could be a fuse

My Chevy 2,000 Mailbu will not start. Sometimes when I try to start it the trunk will pop open. Can you please help?!

Its time to replace the battery. This is common in Chevy cars, if the battery goes bad it doesn't hold a charge anymore. Whats happening in your case is the low voltage isn't keeping the trunk relay closed. When you turn the key all the juice goes to the stater and lets the truck pop open. Just to prove my point, give it a jump start and it will fire right up and the trunk will stay closed.

I replaced the battery in my key fob and now the remote start will not work it pops the trunk open. How do i get the remote start to work again?

If it pops the trunk then the unit is still programmed correctly to the vehicle. I would open it and check the buttons and ensure you didn't pinch them and they are still making contact with the pads inside key fob. Probably just stuck after closing the remote.

The lights are flashing, trunking popping and doors unlocking, constant dinging as if the doors are open. The radio comes on and the car is off.

Some time when the battery is getting week it will make the system do that so i would check the voltage on your battery first the only other thing i could think it would be is the BCM going out and the security system making it do that. good luck and hope this helped.

Cant get my interior lights to come on when i open the door.

My 02 did the same thing, i don't know if you tried this, but turn the interior lights on with the dimmer switch, then back off. Then lock the car with the remote and hopefully when you unlock it the lights will start coming on.

each bulb should be in a socket that is accessable from the trunk... it take a half turn or so to remove it.....
