    key fob in pocket opens trunk when I sit - how to block function?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I have my wife's car, keys for work and home and etc on my keychain. I put the keychain in my pocket and once in a while the trunk opens. This has happened twice during rain storms when the car was parked outside. Not good.

    Is there a way to block the key-fob trunk open feature? i'd like to still be able to open the trunk from the rear release button on the back of the car and from inside, but it would be handy if the key fob did NOT open the trunk.

    I thought of dabbing some super glue on the key fob. I'm looking for a slightly less destructive scheme.

    Thanks!

    You can turn that off from car settings.

    Excellent. How?


    I found the Central Locking screen and I messed around with the settings. So far no joy.

    I'm pretty sure "disable rear lid handle" does just that - disables the outside handle button. Have you tried unchecking "open with convience key" and pressing the trunk button? If that doesn't do it, then you may have to get in the habit of placing your smart key in that little slot to the right of the shift lever instead of keeping it in your pocket.

    Fun fact - I run into the same problem as you sometimes while sitting on the couch at home. The garage is on the other side of the wall and there's been several times where I've walked into the garage and found the rear lid open.

    With the OBDEleven you can change the setting of the fob where for example you need to hold it down for 3 second for the boot to open instead of 1.

    The ODBEleven looks like an interesting device. I have to see if my Android tablet can do this. I don't use Android for cellphones, so far, but the tablet may be able to do it.
    I will go talk to the local Audi service and see if they can make these adjustments.

    In my case the car is parked outside and getting rain in the trunk, and on the electronics in the trunk, was not a happy event.

    I tried the disable rear handle option. This didn't seem to have any effect at all on the key fob OR the trunk release on the back of the car.
    Perhaps I have to do something to activate the change? I did the X, then hit back button, then shutdown the car, locked the car with the FOB, then opened the trunk with the FOB, closed it, and then opened the trunk with trunk release on the back of the car.

    Did i skip a step?
