I believe that it locks and unlocks with the remote lock and unlock. At least that's how mine worksshingles said:"The other is more of an annoyance; the trunk lid must be unlocked every time, and it cannot remain unlocked. "

Man, this just goes to show you can't make everyone happy. People wnat secure storage outside of the cab of trucks. Honda makes one. And now you got this guy complaining that it's locked.
