how do you fix the trunk opening up on it’s own after being wet and then dry. Only time it doesn’t open is when it’s locked. Hard to drive… please help!

Huh???

What to you mean by that? Does the trunk pop open on its own after a rain-shower once it becomes dry? I’d say water is getting in and shorting the remote lock mechanism, cause it to trigger the remote truck actuator.

Soo… it is a trunk, with a remote opening feature. Are you saying it also has a secondary lock that defeats the remote opening feature? Is it mechanical - on the key lock itself? Or a switch you throw to “lock” it?

Need a little help here…
