    Anyone know why my trunk keeps popping open after I close it? In order to keep it closed so I can drive the car, I have to hold the trunk lid down until the locking mechanism clicks while the pressure is applied to the trunk or it will pop back open. Anyone have this problem? I have a 2016 Challenger SRT392 with 13,000 miles on it.

    Have to ask hubby where his key is... Too tired to go rummaging around right now. I'll check in the morning I guess cuz he's passed out in bed already. Thanks for the idea though!

    ^^^^ What they all said. Most likely a key in the trunk or backseat. Let us know, though, I would like to know if it is something else.

    That will definitely cause that. A key in a sweatshirt in trunk or anywhere inside something. Also would do same thing inside vehicle. Wouldn't be able to lock it.

    Must be a key somewhere inside the car

    I told hubby to make sure that body was dead as a doorknob. Hmmmph- men! Lol

    I thought I left a bunch of bananas there for him!
    I thought I was being good with my diet... Then I saw that pecan pie the other day and wham-o! It hit me like a frisbee!

    I was able to lock my key in the car while the car was running. I thought that wasn't supposed to happen but it did.
    I just finished rinsing the car off and I started it up to pull it in the garage, my hand must have hit the lock button on the door, as I closed the door to get something out of the way in the garage. I went to get in the car and it was locked. No way in, even tried putting my hand under the handle and nothing. I could see the damn key sitting next to the shifter. Called the wife to bring the extra set out and that unlocked it. Learned lesson, make sure it is unlocked when doors are closed.
