View Full Version : Open/closing tailgate while sitting in seat with key in pocket

Here's the scenario. I'm sitting in the front seat with the car running and the key in my pocket. I open the rear hatch to let the kids put something in the back. They try to close the hatch and the lights flash and it doesn't close.

It doesn't happen 100% of the time, but enogh to be very annoying.

I imagine that this has something to do with the avoiding locking the key in the back, but is there anyway, short of getting out of the car or digging the key out of my pocket and holding it outside the car to avoid this?
