    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?

2007 ford focus wont open trunk with botton or controler. When you press the controller you can hear clicking in the back. Doesnt have emergancy open

Clicking means that solenoid itself works fine. However it doesn't open which means that link (bolt) from solenoid to lock mechanism is broken.

Boot will not open with handle or remote on my 2005 Ford Focus 1.6 ghia saloon.

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.

Had problem with boot lid popping open when driving itpopped open today and i closed it and locked car when i opened car again the boot lid will not open

Same thing happened on my Focus. I suspected dirt had been preventing the boot from fully locking. A generous application of WD40 on the locking mechanism located on the boot seems to have resolved the problem.

Trunk does not open using dash button or button on

Check your fuse box, look on the diagram and locate the fuse (10 amp most likely) for the auto trunk. The clicking is the relay, it also operates the keylees entry for the doors.

Good luck
