I have a 2000 Chevy Malibu. My car has been running fine until the other day, I noticed it was slow to start, pausing for a second before turning over and starting the engine. A few days later, the car refused to start at all, the dash lights would come on and the engine would turn over twice and stop. The trunk also mysteriously popped open during this process, so I assumed I had accidentally left my trunk open and slowly drained my battery. I call AAA, they come to jump my car, and, of course, it finally starts after one try. The guy tested my battery and said it was perfectly functional and that I should leave my car on to charge it up, so I did. Cut to a few days later, the car won't start again, and the trunk pops open again when I try to turn the ignition. If the battery is fine like he said, would that mean this a wiring issue? How should I go about potentially fixing this myself? Thanks.
