Question about 2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan
When the car is unlocked the boot open itself intermittently.
If the car is locked it does not happen.
It is a fully electronic/solonoid system.
I suspect the solonoid is disengaged when the car is locked.
It seems to happen more ehen it is wammer.
I have disconnected the wire comming from the switch in the driver door and it still happens.
I suspect it could be locking mechanism's solenoid energising itself cause by faultty electronics inside the unit.
I want to save a 600 time around the block trip.
Everytime I take it to the dealer, they reset the computor and say it is fixed.
My Passat did the same thing for a while. Where do you carry your keys? My key was activating in my pocket over a long range and popping my trunk open. If that isn't a possibility, you can simply lock the truck in via the control switches over the speaker. Just turn the key to locked. Try that if nothing else, just remember to unlock it when you need to us the trunk :)
