Unlock boot remotely?

I have noticed on a friends Honda CRV that they can unlock the boot with their key fob and I want in. Is this possible? I think it would be a nice touch cause the boots almost opens fully when I do it manually.

Thanks!

lmfao, always fun times in hoboken


to the OP.... it would prolly entail installing linear actuators (or something of those sort, to pop it), hood/trunk struts to push/hold the trunk up (since the stock torsion bars aren't strong enough to open it all the way), and custom wiring of the trunk latching system that unlatches it, which is hooked up to the alarm fob.

Re: Unlock boot remotely?

DJP - the trunk is called the boot in the developed world outside of the US.


OP - Have you got the premium alarm system? Because if you have, I saw a writeup somehwere, using the spare button on the keyfob this person was able to wire up a remote operated actuator to the boot catch release.
