Unhappy

I've searched and searched but haventh found anything in the forums only about the trunk light itself, but what i want to know is there a "trunk notification light" in the dash, that lets me know the trunk is open. A friend of mine had to get something from the trunk and didnt close it properly and i drove all the way to CT from NY with my trunk open on the I95. It didnt fly open but wouldve been embrassing to have my stuff bump out my trunk on the interstate.

Is there any notification that the trunk is open whether it be the open door icon or its own icon, the open door icon doesnt come on when the trunk is open so i know thats not it. is there none or is mine broken out out or something...

My brake light (in dash) was also not working but comes on when i first start the car but not when i pull the handbrake took it to the dealer and said it was a loose wire which was fixed, but totally forgot to ask about the trunk light.

Yeah I looked in the manual and I couldn't find any reference either. You just need to be aware of the trunk I guess. I have done it once, but once I found my trunk to be open when I got home, I now look at the trunk everytime I get into the car. Kinda silly if you accidentally open the trunk when in the car though. But there has to be a indicator somewhere!!! (even though I believe there isn't)

When I first got my car, it beeped when I hit the alarm. Then magically, one day it stopped beeping and did the 2 flashes thing. Then, a few months down the road, it un-magically reverted back to beeping. I think my alarm is possessed. If anyone knows how to make it stop beeping that would be great.

Or I'll just let my alarm decide for me what it wants to do

Press lock button twice and it beeps. You probably didn't notice when you first got your car.

I've had the car for about 10 days and I think I have driven with the trunk open at least 3 separate occasions. They only way that I knew that it was open is when the alarm wouldn't arm. Does everyone else have to slam their trunk to close it? Also, does anyone else notice you have to slam the doors rather hard to close them too?

My alarm is an aftermarket alarm with autostart. So I guess it beeps twice to unarm like every alarm with two flashes of light. If I try to arm I believe it arms normally with the one beep, but when I unarm, it beeps three times. But again, this is the aftermarket alarm, not stock. So I hope that helps!
