Why does my 2005 Avalon trunk open from the outside button (on the trunk lid) when the car is locked?

Question type: General

When locking my 2005 toyota avalon (either with FOB or manually) the trunk
can be opened manually with the button on the back.Why?

1 Answer

Only if you have the key fob within about 6 feet of the trunk. If you don't, it is secure. If you are standing right there with the key, no need to be locked.
