You might have a power trunk button try to look for it also you should download your owners manual at ford owners.Com it should give you the location and your fuse box diagrams and other information now the seat you will have to unbolt it the side panels pop out and are held in with clips the bottom of the seat may pop out by pushing inwards but this also could be bolted in look around the bottom also when you pop out the side panels you might gain accessories to the rear deck bolts that the third brake light is attached to and radio speakers if applicable anyway you should be able to axcess the trunk by this path it's going to be a pain in the gozompus but you can get in I don't own a focus but from memory of getting stuff in junk yards I'm trying to help you so excuse me if I'm wrong here or there so pull out the door seals that go around the door opening there might be panel bolts in the frame and seat bolts behind once you get to them you should be able to get to the levers also I know that the lock was possibly frozen when you put in the key knocking in the weather shield and jamming the lock cylinder you can try putting the key in and keep trying to turn it while banging the trunk where the cylinder is and you might jar it loose that metal flap has a spring on it and those 2 things are stopping the key from turning the other alternative is to try using a very small screwdriver to try to move it out of the way so the key will turn you have to be gentle here digging in like crazy will not help and last of all if you can't get in then use a drill and destroy the cylinder completely and a long screwdriver and a hammer will get you in you'll have to change the cylinder anyway so whack away at it if all else fails good luck stephen

SOURCE: my trunk wont open!!

Someone else posted the same problem, so I went out to my Focus and found a way to release the back seats. It is diffecult, but possible, to push the release lever in the trunk with a thin board (like a 4 foot piece of baseboard) through the space between the seats. The release lever is in the upper corner (passenger side) of the trunk. Get something to wedge between the seats and a flashlight. Post the result if this works.

SOURCE: my trunk will not open on my 2002 ford focus

It sounds like your latch has double locked. Here is the fun part, can you drop your rear seat and get into the trunk? If you can look for a tag that is possabily glowing pull it to release the emergency latch on the trunk. then with your finger lock the latch and check to see if it is leaving a large enough gap fot your pinky finger to fit in. if it is then you have reset it. if not then pull the emergency release a few more times

Remove back seat ,bottom first push seat in the middle with both hands ,lift after you have pushed on seat this releases the catch.remove the top part of the seat you will need to remove 2 screws lift srtaight up the seat will come out ,now you will see sound deadning material ,remove ,carefull not to tear,with flash lite look at inside of trunk lock area ,you will see a slot on the latch ,use regular flat screw driver to insert into slot just turn right ,left the trunk will open .you can take out trunk lock cylender out and any lock repair shop can re key the lock by looking at the tumblers inside the cylender.Good luck I know this will work ,sounds like a lot of work but not realy.

How can I open my 1995 oldsmobile cutlass ciera trunk if the key wont an there is no trunk release button?


Shoot WD40 up in the key hole as well up in the latch area up where the latch would be and some times this works. These should be lubricated several times a year but most people do not think about these areas. All doors should be done as well.

2003 Kia Optima doors are unlocked but wont open. How do I get the doors open in order to remove the panels to fix the problem?


will the drivers door not open whilst the key is turned in the key lock ?if not can you open the trunk with the key , lean into the trunk and there should be a catch to release one of the rear seats down, then get some one small , scramble through to the rear of vehicle and open back door from inside , hope this helps,when you get into vehicle check the fuse for the central locking as might save you stripping out the door panel,if fuse ok just strip out the drivers door as this is the actuating lock that sends the signal to the other doors

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

My trunk wont open what key do i use nether will my gas tank door


Hello: Please check the valet switch in the glove box if it is on, turn it off and try the trunk and fuel door. Also there are 2 fuses for this system. The fuses are in the trunk compartment fuse block. They are labeled as follows:radio/phone fuse 10 amp and convenience fuse 20 amp. The round key should open the trunk, if not then it might be the wrong key or the trunk lock cylinder may have been replaced.

if you insert the key in the lock and turn it alittle further the boot should open.the noise you hear is the actuator moving,but the plastic rod to open the boot is probably brocken.
