Happened this weekend as I was sitting in my car. Fob was never touched. Heard the characteristic sound of the frunk spontaneously unlatching. Couldn't get the frunk to latch closed. Couldn't open it either, despite manually pulling on the frunk release tab below the glove compartment, pressing the fob, pressing the frunk release on the screen, or rebooting the screen. Drove home slowly and ignominiously. Arrived home and successfully closed on first attempt! Weird but ok. A one off I thought and Tesla service agreed. Well, it happened again today WHILE I WAS DRIVING, fortunately on a local road going 35 and not 80 on a highway. After getting home, repeated all prior steps and still wouldn't close. I read the forums and got the idea to manually pull on the frunk release lever below the glove compartment about 20 times, and the frunk finally closed.
Has this happened to anyone else? I'm hoping I won't have to bring it in for service if someone here can give me a magical remedy. I'm guessing it's a faulty fuse.
