Trunk opening button works while driving!

Hi!

I borrowed my MS to a friend who has small kids. The car has the rear facing jump seats in the back..

Kids being kids in a new car with many tempting gadgets, they obviously pressed the trunk open button inside the car. While the car was moving. And yes the trunk popped open.

Why does the button work when driving? You can't open a DOOR if the car is in D gear. Why would anyone want to open the trunk?

Anyway, I'm sure everyone learned their lesson and this will not happen again. :)

Are you sure you car doesn't let you open doors while in D? Doors in my Model S open just fine when the car is in D. I've had passengers get out of the car without me putting it in P.

Front doors open, but rear doesn't. Maybe there's a setting somewhere?

I started reading new manual. There is definitely
A setting that can lock the rear windows (child protection). Haven’t gotten to frunk or
Trunk operation yet. The manual is quite
Long.
