Anyone had this...

Car is locked, double locked.
Unlock the boot by hand, put whatever it was in the boot
Close boot lid
Car beeps, boot pops up
Will not shut.
Unlock car
Close Boot lid
Lock car.
No problems.

Seems, and this is by no means conclusive, when ever the car is double locked, and I unlock the boot by hand I can't close it. Unless I unlock the car first.

It's not driving me mad, yet, but I have a feeling it might, my eye has started to twitch, usual a first sign.

It sounds as though the key sensor in the boot has developed a twitch.

If it feels that there is a key in the boot and the lid is closed while the car is locked then it pops the lid.
You should probably take it to the dealer.

And I would check that there really is no key in the boot ;)

Mystery solved.

Wife / Kids / Car Key Gnomes had put my spare key in one of the box files I was tipping in the boot.

Nice to know, I was getting worried!

Thanks for all the clues!

Nice to know that the feature works, though.
I haven't tried it myself.

The feature is not 100% fool proof;

On my initial visit to a dealer to view the XF the salesman opened the boot, threw in the key fob, shut the boot, and then said "That's never happened before"! :oops:

Much to my amusement he then scuttled off to get the spare fob. ;)

Moral of the story: A useful feature but do not be reliant upon it to work all of the time.
