Subject: 9000 Trunk Release

On my '91 9000, the driver's door trunk release switch *always* operates, regardless of the ignition being on/off. Is this normal for all 9000's? Are they still doing this on the 9-5? I think this is a *really* lame design. Once someone's gained access to the cabin- whether break-in, open window or sunroof (locked my keys in the trunk once and used a long stick thru the slightly open sunroof to push the button), valet, whatever- they've got whatever's in your trunk as well. So much for secure storage! The only logic I can see behind this, is the designers figured that is someone wants in your trunk, they're going to get there, so this way they just break a window, instead of using a crow bar. I'm often driving around with $20 or $30,000 worth of computer equipment in my trunk, so I've just unplugged the switch inside the door. Has anyone rewired their switch off the ignition, so it only works when the key's on? Geoff
