trunk sounds alert when closing

2015 honda civic ex (sedan)

was placing boxed in trunk, and decided to fold the rear seat-backs forward for additional trunk room. there are two latches accessible from trunk-lid which i pulled. deciding i did not need the extra room, i firmly pushed the rear seats back to normal position (upright). now, when i try closing the trunk, there is an audible alert (seems to be three short beeps), and a relay pops open the trunk again.

after this happens, i quickly try looking at driver's instrumentation up front, but there is no dummy-light. all the seat-belts are locked and the seat-backs are firmly in place.

what am i missing? the trunk remains unlatched at this time and the trunk courtesy-light is slowly draining the battery.

oh yea

Re: trunk sounds alert when closing (quick answer pls)

okay … no longer urgent … but am curious just the same.

seems a couple of the storage boxes i was loading into the trunk are the culprit. maybe a sensor inside the trunk doesn't like the huge plastic storage bins. i have listed below the storage box … go figure.

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

You left a keyless fob in the trunk.

Maybe recheck those boxes for your missing second fob.
