    cant think of another car that requires only the key or fob to open trunk, all cars have a button

    Cruise control add-on by SnakeOyl works great for those of us that actually drive our Vipers!
    Trunk release button should be simple, can't believe someone hasn't done it yet!

    trunk button is easy to do. I just don't see a reason. The trunk is the SECURE spot in my vert. I leave the top down a lot. The good shit goes in the trunk. putting in a button for an asshat to find kinda ruins the whole plan. But yes it can be set up easily.

    Electronic button will not open the truck unless the car is unlocked! So if properly installed, it would still be secure. They have been doing them for gas release doors for years!!!!

    The trunk doesn't lift by itself. You still have to lift at the same time as pushing the button. (push button, go back lift gate. Still stuck on primary latch.) Button in pass compartment worthless....

    If your trunk lid is set up properly, there should be 2 "catches". The first catch is a safety just like your hood has. The second actually locks lid down against the seal.
    When you pop the button, it will release the lock catch. The lift struts don't have enough strength to lift lid past the safety catch. If you don't have to push the button twice, your decklid isn't closing all the way.

    I don't think that is correct. Mine doesn't require the button being pressed twice. I've checked the mechanism as well. It seems to be working as it should.

    My 04 and 06, I adjusted the rubber trunk bump stops up a little bit and now when I press the fob trunk release it will pop open just enough to no longer be latched.

    For locked keys and fob in trunk, the easiest solution is to take an extra fob without a key on it and hide under dash. If worried about battery going dead in fob, stick extra battery in the center console or glove compartment. No wiring or switch needed....

    That wouldn't work if the keys locked in the trunk and the fob is locked inside the car. Easier to keep a spare key under the hood somewhere because then you could at least open the driver door or the trunk manually, even if the battery is dead or disconnected.
