We often find that opening the boot causes the car's alarm to trigger... the dealer's baffled and so we're wondering if anyone else has the problem.
Firstly, we have comfort access. So we should, in theory, be able to walk up to the locked boot, press the release, and have it open. It does
open, but quite often the alarm is triggered at the same time.
Secondly, we find the problem also occurs if we do things the non-comfort-access way - i.e. we hold down the boot release on the keyfob for a second or so. Yes - the boot pops up as it should, but there's a good chance the car's alarm will be triggered too.
Both items are intermittent but generally happen, say, 2 in 5 times.
The manual mentions something about a panic alarm - but I doubt we're experiencing this as it'd be madness to have it triggered by comfort access and the boot opens quite happily in either case. Also, I think the panic alarm is triggered by a different button - and there is some confusion as to whether it works at all in the UK (see some entries under http://www.mini2.com/forum/2nd-gen-m...ght=boot+alarm
Anyway.. the long and the short is that the boot opens quite happily, but with the alarm also blaring away in many cases. And it's annnnnnoying! Anyone else experienced this?
