    Seen this same fault a few years back on a B5 RS4, If I remember correctly it was water ingress in the boot lid effecting the soft touch buttons. Take the boot lid trim off & have a look, if it turns out thats not the problem you can disconnect the lock solinoid/actuator while your in there & that will stop it happening until you locate the fault. The boot can then only be opened with the key blade.
