'07 Versa trunk releases when brake depressed

Hello. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I've never performed car maintenance, however, I am an electronics technician (so it's possible that I can perform your suggestions). My wife's car has two problems. The trunk release button above the rear license plate stopped working (doors unlocked). Also, with the doors unlocked if I depress and release the brake, the trunk unlatches/opens upon the release of the brake. This occurs in all gears (P, R,N...etc.) I disconnected the plug to stop it from occurring. Took it to the dealership a few weeks later. They couldn't recreate the problem....and miraculously both problem rectified themselves. It's been a month since the dealership trip and now both problems have returned.

I did not have any issues with the brake issue you have, but the trunk button on both the car and the remote stopped working. From what I read in the service manual, there is a computer controlled device in one of the doors that tells the trunk lock to open. I too, checked the fuses, wiring to the trunk lock activator, and all appears to be in order. Again, from the service manual, to find the problem, the door panels need to be taken off, and then you need the proper electrical equipment in order to diagnose the issue. If you go to the dealer service department, they will not be able to give you a firm price as to the amount of labor hours the technician will have to log in order to fine the problem. Found it a lot easier just to use the key to open the trunk. I know its a pain, but it beats the alternative. Good luck
