I had the same problem. I found that every wire in the harness of the back hatch was broken. I spliced them back together and everything works.

SOURCE: Rear hatch power lock doesn't work

There is not a seperate relay or fuse for that particular lock. One fuse runs all of the locks. The problem probably is in the wiring where it hinges from the body of the cat to the trunk lid. You will find a plastic wire loom going along one of the hinges for the trunk lid, you will have to open up the loom and check for a broken wire where the wire bend the most. Some times just shaking or moving the wire harness will make the lock work.

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

Ford focus wiring


same thing happened to us.  My wife came home and said the rear brake lights were stuck on so I assumed it was the brake switch...not so. Took car for a ride and noticed rear wiper did not work and when I hit the brake the rear hatched opened and door locks blew out.  I started by looking at the wires in the gromet above the hatch and found almost all the wires were bare.  Therefore power was jumping  the bare wires and traveling back down the third break light and to the rear brake lights and visa versa.. a very dangerous situation.  The best that I can tell is the wires are so short in length that they pull and chafe every time you open and close the hatch...very poor design...   Note: we bought our vehicle brand new and some of the wires had electrical tape on them....seems mickey moused.

Rear hatch door won't lock dash light showing


You need to tighten the lock mech on the boot lid. this will close the boot just enough more to turn the light on. It's no biggy, you might need a star driver depending on bolt head. move it into the boot lid approx 4mm to start. then 1mm until 10mm. if no joy then it may be the sensor.
All the best

Rear wiper and Rear defrost not working


jmdevan: There is a harness that runs through that hatch that controls all 3 of these. Either there is a fuse blown to that harness or the harness got disconnected (uhaul??)
Do you have tail/brake/backup lights?
Look in your owners manual and see if there is a common fuse for these 3.
It's got to be one of these 2 problems.
My money is on Uhaul breaking the power to these 3 when connecting the trailer harness.
