Default 2014 Accord EX-L Pecuiarity

This one had me perplexed for a while. Earlier today when I tried to closethe trunk lid, there was an immediate series of beeps and the lid would pop open. This happened several times in a row after which it seemed to workproperly. After stopping at a hardware store, it began to do the same thing.

To make a long story short, I had a Google Nexus tablet in the trunk to keep it out of sight. Apparently the wifi transmitter was interfering with the trunk lid release. When I put the tablet in the cabin with me, all was well again. Bluetooth on the tablet was off, just wfi enabled.

Hope this is not just the tip of the iceberg for nasty EMI problems.

I have a 2013 Accord EX that has been doing this occasionally since Day
one. I don't carry any electronics in the car. Often happens 2-3 times
before it stays closed.

Is this a *feature*, to prevent you from losing your phone, or locking
someone with a phone inside??

to prevent locking the keys inside, actually. Obviously the system is
not triangulating key location correctly in these cases. There is
probably (usually) a software update to correct it.

Or, you can throw your keys twenty feet from the car before trying to
lock it.

I suspect as has been said, that this is the tip of an iceberg. All the
equipment that we have in our home that radiates RF has the potential
for interference. I had to put a noise suppression device inside our
microwave to keep it from locking out our wireless connection to our TV
and Netflix. An ordinary in line device did not work. I had to get
coaxial capacitors from China and mount them inside the metal case to
suppress this noise.

My 98 CRV would not open the door for me when parked next to a radar
controlled door. I just used my key. but you can see where this is
going. I have an elaborate security system that I installed in our home.
I hard wired everything. I was not going to trust any wireless device
when it came to home security. Home security means many indoor and
outdoor motion detectors, smoke detectors. Multiple camera control and
recording, and miscellaneous detectors like available hot water and
sewage flow. I am a retired coder and it was easy for me to write the
code. I sure had plenty of time.
