Question about 2005 Audi A8
When i press the button to close the trunk, it will close and then immediately open again. If i close the hood manually, it will shut (apparently). The light on the console will indicate that trunk is still ajar.
Because car senses ajar trunk, it won't allow security to activate when i lock the car doors.
any ideas on what upgrades are necessary for me to integrate my ipod with radio. Do i need to upgrade the MMI or the cd player?
I had exact same problem, but what I found out was a three step solution to the problem.
1) The trunk lock above the trunk lid tself - sometimes looses coiling retention for the lock to work properly, which in effect does not properly lock wrap around the pull down electronic unit located in the body of the car/trunk that catches and pull the trunk lid down SOLUTION: check and make sure lock is works properly. you cab check by opening trunk and locking it with remote key, then pry the lock with a screw driver to see if it unlocks or stays locked
2) The motor catching unit in the body of the car/trunk that catches the lid and draws it down can be off balance (sitting too low to catch the lock (upper trunk lid with lock) to pull it down and stay locked. Have a mechanic - Audi preferrably, check the positon and allignment to adjust it, so it can catch trunk lid and lock to stay locked. HOPE THIS HELPS!

Hi, I had the same problem with 05 A8 after a 24hrs purchase.. Having an A8 I took to the dealer they replace the upper deck actuator and that was it. Have a great day.
