Tips

The luggage compartment lid will only open or close 1) if you perform the movement as described. This prevents the luggage compartment lid from opening or closing due to similar movements 1), such as when you walk between the rear of the vehicle and your garage door.

This may happen if:

  • You are standing too close to the bumper or too far away from it
  • The luggage compartment lid was closed or opened immediately beforehand
  • You park close to a hedge and the branches move back and forth under the vehicle for a long period of time
  • You clean your vehicle, for example with a pressure washer or in a car wash
  • There is heavy rain
  • The bumper is very dirty, for example after driving on salt-covered roads
  • There is interference to the vehicle key's radio signal, such as from mobile devices or remote controls

1) The closing function applies to vehicles that also have automatic luggage compartment lid operation.
