    the actual cable for the emergency release for the trunk is broken. I just need to know how to get the trunk open so I can fix it OR need a diagram of how to fix the cable. I cant find where the cable went to so I can fix it. The remote trunk button doesnt work and the button on the inside of the car doesnt work AND the key doesnt open the trunk. I just want to open my trunk. thanks

Did you check all your fuses? Are you in cold enough weather that it may be frozen

    If diagnosis & repair of other functions isn't an option right now, then I guess your going to have to pull back seat out & in ya go!

    Good Luck.

Why won't my trunk or fuel door open on my 95 mercury cougar

Open the glove box; you'll see two buttons to the left, the lower one is for the gas tank. Get an owner's manual asap as it helps to have this. Best of luck. (here's my ride)

Power Locks dont work and neither does the trunk release

My car has a fuse box near the battery. when you take the cover off there is a map under the cover to show what all the fuses and relays are. I would check the fuses.

Cougar 2001 trunk latch won't release

Hello Cougar446,

If you able to open your trunk with the electric release you will be able to access the lock mechanism.

Once you have access to the lock it should be obvious if it is broken or just needs a little lubricant (silicone spray lube) sprayed into the key access slot.

PS: If you have a spare key that has less wear and tear on it, try that key.

Good news and bad news.....

Inside the trunk is an emergency pull cord. When you turn the key there is a little piece on that cord that the key pulls on... you can only fix it with the trunk open though. So, to open it, get the remote or have a second person to open the trunk right after you press the button. Open it while the latch is rewinding.
