Sometimes it will work and other times it won't ?? I've got it turned on on the LCD panel. Will not work in my garage at all. It worked at Walmart the other night and now nothing?

I presume you checked to see if none of the following scenarios were in play:

The Smart Trunk does not operate
when:
- The smart key is detected within
15 seconds after the doors are
closed and locked, and is continuously
detected.
- The smart key is detected within
15 seconds after the doors are
closed and locked, and 60 inches
(1.5 m) from the front door handles.
(for vehicles equipped with
Welcome Light)
  • A door is not locked or closed.
  • The smart key is in the vehicle.
Also, if you press any button of the smart
key during the Detect and Alert
stage, the Smart Trunk function will
be deactivated.

There are other scenarios listed that may prevent the Smart Trunk from operating but those involve radio signal interference or if the vehicle is not level (e.g., parked on a sloped road).

Short of any of the above, I suppose at that point you may need to have the dealer run a diagnostic check on it. When you say that sometimes it "won't work", do you mean that even the Smart Trunk warning/alert chime doesn't go off at all?

Thank you kind sir. It works like it's suppose to. Now, setting down and reading the manual LOL

15 seconds after the doors are
closed and locked
, and is continuously
detected.
