    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    GOt the car back from the dealer yesterday. THey did say that there were a number of modules not communicating correctly (not sure what it all means). They did some updates according to them and since I got it back I do feel the car is more consistent. Meaning when I walk up it lights up...

    Yeah my guy saw dollar signs, I thought he would do what you are doing, he was going to remove the pony logo and repaint the whole trunk and wanted 1200 dollars, I told he was crazy the scratch is not that bad

    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    As long as it does not hit anything.... My car is currently at the dealer for a diagnostic I will let you know if they find anything. I asked them to fix the scratch, not sure if they will. It is just annoying. It would be easier to accept if it was something I did, the fact that the car did it...

    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    Quick update. Talked to my friend with the body shop and he told me the scratch is too deep he would have to repaint the trunk. So screw that, In about two months I won't even notice so it is all about acceptance now. Still showing the dealership on monday, as they asked me to come so they can...

    It was defenitley not the dog, look at the video, it happend when I closed the garage door to open the side door to let the dog in. So the dog was not even in the garage yet https://www.macheforum.com/site/attachments/trunk-hitting-garage-mp4.23197/

    I think I may do the same just to have piece of mind. I don't want it to open when I am out and about. For a smart car it sure does dumb things. :)

    Garage Door Accident

    Another note of sympathy, not something I did but the trunk opened on its own against the garage door. Probably light triggered the under bumper sensor. see trhead here. It is all about getting passed the first scratch, now it is yours :) Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come...

    I think the trunk has a sensor when it hits something it will stop which it did. What it hit just happend to be a metal bracket from the garage door. But I fixed it see below. Now just polishing out he scratches. Again 8 months from now probably would not care.

    I agree with you, and yes I did find a way to turn it off but I like the feature. I changed the video to M4V maybe that plays.

    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    I just realized that I have a camera in the garage and I tracked down the footage and it was definitely not the dog. As you can see (around 11 sec mark) the grage goes down and as soon as it hits the floor the trunk opens. SO I really think it is the under the bumper senser and possible the play...

    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    I pretty sure he did not, as he was mostly annoying me working out. Regardless the phone was 5 feet away, It is funny that a lot of times I have a hard time for the car to see the phone as I walk up I have to take it out or make sure the app is on. And now it does all that and the phone is not...

    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    It was not a problem with the opening height, that remains set correctly. The trunk opened on its own with the garage door closed. I know a good body guy, he said he can buff it out. I will be hanging some foam on that garage bracket. All this makes you wonder, will the car stop if the traffic...

    He tends to stay clear of the cars. I had music going and did not acutally see it happen, so I am not sure. But I know I did not hit any button.

    I agree, because it is really hard to open the trunk sometimes by waving your foot under it, I was trying to explain it to myself what could have happened. That is the best I can come up with. I don't want this to happen when your parked at the store. I am sending this to ford so they know.

    Trunk opened on its own and hit the garage door... Come on Ford!!!

    My car is kept Pristine inside the garage. The garage door clearence to the back of the car is about 5 inches. I was working out using the TRX app on the phone near the car. The garage door was open during my workout. At some point I closed the grage door because my dog came in. After a while I...
