I can't seem to get the foot swipe trunk open to work. I've only gotten it to work 2x and failed about 20. Other key fob isn't near by... trunk isn't locked inside of glove compartment either.

Do i just have crappy foot technique?
I've found that the distance from you to the bumper is most important. Pretty sure it uses the parking sensors on the bumper to register the movement. That's why it only works when the doors are locked and the car is off. other wise all the asshole tailgaters may pop your trunk. lol

Anyway, you just have to make sure your kick is not inside the range of the center two sensors. That's what's done it for me. Prior to figuring that out, I failed miserable several times. lol
