I’m periodically getting a message that my trunk is open. Sure enough when I head back there to check it IS open. Thing is, I haven’t opened it. Thinking the latch mech likely needs to be replaced but wanted to check with this crew to see if any of you have experienced this too.

The latch can go bad, has some sort of a switch inside. I tried opening mine but wouldn't do it again. Replacing with used is quite straight forward, I think there is some weird piece of plastic that needs removed. But I would first look at the wiring loom that goes from the car to the trunk, these wires can break if the trunk was opened often times in the past - I think this was mostly for the XC70/V70 models.

Thank you, replaced it with a wreckyard bit and all is well.
