Unexpected trunk opening

Our 2012 750iX has been a pleasure to drive, it having replaced our 8 year old VW

However, have experienced phantom trunk openings.

Key on a safe spot in the car, and just after starting the engine, trunk lid pops open.
Happend twice in the past day!

Could the key fob be sticking or sending spurious signals?

Will check with the deal on Monday.

WOW; what a coincidence! This happened to me once, for the first time, week before last, but opposite... Parked, turned off car, went into Starbucks, returned and my trunk was open. Thought it was strange, but hasn't happened since. Plan to stay tuned to this thread!
