How do you use the remote to open the trunk?

One of the most convenient features of your car’s Remote Entry system is the ability to open the trunk without having to use the key or the interior trunk release. Here’s how to work it:

  • Make sure the trunk is closed.

  • Press the Trunk button twice in three seconds.

  • The trunk should unlatch.

Tip

Make sure you completely close and latch the trunk before entering the car and starting the ignition. Driving with the trunk open is a safety hazard. It blocks your view of the back, but it also allows toxic carbon monoxide from the exhaust into the cabin.
