    its like a sensor on the boot that you press - it kind of clicks but whereas the boot would normally then come up it just clicks and does nothing !! It has been pretty cold here so I have been having a look on the net and wondering if the sensor is frozen ?? people have suggested just waiting until it warms up or maybe hot water on the sensor ??

    2005 Focus boot won't open and won't close! When I turned on the ignition, the boot mechanism went click, but didn't shut. The electronic boot release (on the boot) doesn't operate. I pushed the boot shut, thinking this might reset the mechanism, but no luck. When I drive, the electric boot closure mechanism keeps operating, and occasionally the warning light comes on, but the boot remains in a limbo state of not openable, but not fully closed.

    Any ideas?

I have elantra crdi 2005 is perfect and because i love this car so much i have no idea of selling before a week it dint start in morning.i tried for half an hour pressing clutch it sta

I would check the computer data for the engine coolant temperature sensor before starting it in the morning. If the sensor is not reading the correct temperature, it could cause the symptoms you are describing.

I know it's late, but you have a bad microswitch in the handle. I had the same problem with my 2005 focus. It needs to be replaced, that's it.
