Check the trunk release switch (either in the car or the fob) it sounds like it is allways operated but is inhibited when in drive or rev but becomes enabled when in park (safety feature so trunk cannot be opened in motion)

2007 Pontiac Grand Prix when parked if I open trunk a while later the trunk will pop open. Lights flash.


Is this an aftermarket key opener. ? The brain box for this unit is some times mounted behind the left kicker panel by the left foot of the driver. And they get wet from foot water ie snow. Rain. The yr of ur car sounds like this unit could be water damaged. Have a look. Is u see green stuff allover the contracts thats ur issue. As well some times older cars remote fob controller is not isolated from other sigs. Ur truck does it only pop open when parked in one location ie home or work u might be picking up a similar radio req as ur button for truck lid as they have different radio freqs to control different things

How do I prevent trunk from popping open?


Some trunks have a lever near the trunk latch on the lid to disable electrically opening the trunk. Could be a short causing the trunk open switch to open the trunk. If it doesn't open electrically via a button then you have something bent and the trunk doesn't close properly.

My trunk lid will not open on my 2005 nissan sentra. The remote not opening (do hear it click) and the inside button and key not working to open the trunk either


Just beneath the latch ,you can see a clip,turn it up and close the trunk.Try opening it with the button near dash or remote.It should work.They designed it to avoid theft during vallet parking.The main key(steel one) is used only for ignition.There is another key(with a black rubber head) is for ignition and trunk.So if you want to avoid missing any items from trunk using vallet parking,use the main key,put the clip down and hand that to the person who is assisting you during vallet parking.

My truck release button only works when I turn the car off...(?)


If the trunk opens only when it's in park, it's probably a safety feature so you don't open the trunk while your driving down the road.

Trunk light and dash light always on


I would have to agree it's an electrical problem. It might simply be a defective trunk lid latch switch. Here's the wiring diagram:
