    Default Trunk opens when door key pad is touched.

    My trunk opens when i activate any electrical device. So far it doesn't open when i am driving. Has anyone had this happen?

    No, that's a first here.

    Activation of any electrical device, is a bit vague and generalized.

    Turn signals? Infotainment? Vanity mirror lighting? If it happens when operating door switches only (as the title implies) please read on. . .

    The RCDLR module authorizes the doors to open if a fob is within range. It also permits the rear decklid to raise. Since it is common to your problem, I would suspect it being faulty first, before moving on during troubleshooting. You will need a dealer to scan the module, and observe its status while the fault is active. They can replace as necessary and re-program it to match your fobs.

    Try checking the trunk release button on the lower part of the dash, to see if it's popped back up all the way. When mine got stuck down a little sideways, the trunk would open every time I opened the driver door. Sheer luck that I figured out the button was the problem. Now I ONLY use the fob to open the trunk.

    yep, I drive a hybrid - a V8 bred for high speed!
