sometime when I close the trunk on 2013 Honda Accord, it would not close

Asked by Jul 04, 2013 at 09:15 PM about the 2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It happened a few times that when I close the trunk, it pops open again by itself and give
out a few beeping sound. One time I have to start the car and turn it off again. The other
time I have to move the car ahead. What is the problem? How can it be fixed?

It's the new feature that keeps you from locking your keys in the trunk. I would check with your dealer since the car is so new.

Or is wife's purse or another set of keys possibly in there.

How close are you holding your keys to the trunk when you try to close it? Might try having them in the hand away from trunk when closing it.

So true, 2nd set of keys are inside the trunk and after taking it out it closes. Thanks

For the trouble with not latching and giving 3 beeps: I have found that if you completely empty the trunk, then close the trunk it will latch. That is alll the dealer did to fix. There is some sensor in there that is keeping the trunk from latching. I then refilled the trunk and it was fine for a few months. It happened again, I emptied the trunk again and... voila!--it latches again.

Thanks vincec811. It worked perfectly.

You can also hold down the trunk for 10 beeps and it will remained locked. It is much easier to remove the car from the trunk or close it with your body sideways I'd it is detecting the let in your pocket.

one of the above answer save my time and effort. there was spare key was inside the trunk. once i take it back it closes normally. Thanks a lot for your support

I have been having trunc door issue with my 2018 Honda accord. Holding down the door for 10 beeps helped. It seems to happen first time in the morning. I did not see the issue the second time I had to open the door. Mark
