bmw trunk opens by itself



I brought fully loaded BMW X3 in April, last couple of weeks I noticed three times trunk opening by itself in garage, since garage closed it also done damage to the truck (small dent), I thought may be key got pressed as I used keep in my laptop bag, after first incident kept the key in bed-room closet in a plastic box when I am not using X3, after that I noticed two times open trunk, after the first incident I attached the theromcol piece to garage door so there is no more damage, but I am concerned it is safety issue if this happens in parking lot or while driving, I goggled and many other also complained. Is anyone else faced the similar problem is something known issue, is BMW addressing. Any inputs will be appreciated.

Do you have the sensor that opens the trunk when you move your foot under the bumper?

Yes I do have sensor that opens trunk door waving the legs, but that works only if key in pocket/hand and couple of feet distance.

Can you get the car scanned for errors? something is triggering it to open either as a safely or false signal. Worth a shot

Assuming that you have the F25 X3, there is a software update for the lock unlock logic to correct this occurrence.
