Trunk Entrapment
Your vehicle is equipped with an internal trunk release mechanism.

A person trapped in the luggage compartment can release the lid from the inside using the unlocking handle.

The handle is fluorescent and glows in the dark.

Information

  • When loading the luggage compartment, make sure that items of luggage or other objects cannot become caught on the handle.
    This could cause the luggage compartment to open unintentionally.



Warning light

A warning message in the on-board computer lights up when the unlocking handle is operated.

  • Stop the vehicle immediately when the warning lights light up.
  • Check the luggage compartment.
  • Close the lid.

Function with vehicle stationary
If the luggage compartment lid is unlocked with unlocking the handle, the lid can be opened from the inside immediately.

Function with vehicle in motion
If the luggage compartment lid is unlocked with the unlocking handle when a speed of 2 mph (3 km/h) is exceeded, the warning message in the on-board computer lights up.

At the same time, the lid is unlocked and the latch striker pops into the catch-hook position.

Unsecured Luggage Compartment Lids

If the warning message in the on-board computer lights up when the vehicle is in motion, the lid may impact in front of the windshield and can tear off.

Stop the vehicle immediately when the warning message lights up.

  • Check the luggage compartment.
  • Close the lid.

Information
The lid cannot be opened from the inside if the battery is disconnected or empty.

Safety reasons require that you unscrew the latch striker of the lid lock if you plan to put the vehicle out of operation for an extended period.

  • Please consult your authorized Porsche dealer.
    They will advise you about the necessary measures.
