I moved into a new apt Monday after work and the last two mornings I have walked out to my 2007 SEL and found the trunk lid open (as if I had activated the fob button to open it). Last night I unloaded groceries and I closed the trunk firmly checking to see if it would open (the trunk lid stayed put after I pulled up firmly). All I can figure is is someone elses key fob (or garage door opener) must be on the same frequency. This hasnt been a problem before.

Any ideas on what is causing this or how to stop it? Thanks in advance.

With the change in temperature/humidity, I wonder if something is wrong with the latch. Even though you are firmly closing it...try adjusting the bump stops on the ends and lubricate the latch.

It is highly unlikely you are getting someone else's remote to open your car.

Would be kinda funny though if you hit the button to pop your trunk and your neighbors garage opened, and the other neighbors alarm went off.
