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.



Function

If the luggage compartment lid is unlocked with unlocking the handle, the latch striker pops into the catch-hook position and the lid can be opened from the inside immediately.

A warning message in the multi-purpose display lights up when unlocking handle is operated.

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

Unsecured Luggage Compartment Lid

If the warning message in the multi-purpose display 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.
