Trunk is possessed....

Sometimes when I get in my car and close the door the vibration will make my trunk lock go crazy and just keep trying to open. What's the deal?

Nah that's not the problem it's my actual lock itself, it unlocks by itself like your hitting the trunk button on your key fob only when it unlocks it tries to do it like 8 times in a row

Microswitch is likely stuck in - it's inside the trunk lock mechanism - take it apart and you'll see it.

Well...if you do have a dicey connection in the elephant trunk, it will click on and off as it connects and reconnects from the slightest vibration.

It could be a wire broken inside its insulation. Don't rule that out.
