It's not a sensor, it's the rearward facing internal camera .... there is someone watching you all the time ....Pretty interesting that they have sensors there linked to the system.
My understanding is this isn't so much a warning as an instruction; that if you don't close the lid gently it bends to open up again.
Right, I can see the system wanting to tell people that if they're slamming it shut, but I wasn't..I was just opening and closing it in rapid succession.
should have spent the money making the lid latch more durable.
took me like 20 tries to close it at the showroom, which then displayed this same warning...
Did it successfully latch when you close it quickly?
For me, if I close it fast it doesn’t latch, so it just swings open again.
Interesting. I figured the note popped up when the latch tried and failed to engage repeatedly.Yes, it was properly toggling between closed and open when I was doing this. I'm also impressed that the "locking" mechanism allows it to be opened pretty softly by pressing on the "wrong" side of the lids. In other cars, pressing on the wrong side could break the mechanism to hold it shut.
I was just opening and closing it in rapid succession.
The trigger, in this case, was probably just the repeated closing. The system thought that it was being repeatedly closed because it wasn't closing properly so it gave the warning/instruction.Interesting. I figured the note popped up when the latch tried and failed to engage repeatedly.
The trigger must be in the speed of closing, not the latch.
Time to do some experimenting
