You may have to take the back seat out and go in from there.

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: trunk lock wont open

if you do hear the click noise then that means your trunk is now unlocked. Try giving it as much force as you can while someone else is hitting the trunk release, your hinges for your trunk are probably hung up on something.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Focus shift button stuck in park

Had the same problem; brake lights worked, too. It freaked me out at first as I was far from home when it happened, but I used the override to get back out of park for a couple days (it's under that "dime sized cover" like snorkelboby said). I asked a mechanic who also thought it was a solenoid issue but turns out, my brakes shoes needed replaced and I haven't had the problem since. I assume since you have to apply the brakes to shift, it must have been the worn shoes...

SOURCE: shift lock override: followed manual-screwdriver went in to far.

sometimes access hole is not directly over trigger point try closer to top of access hole if it goes down more than 1" try again it releases quickly.

SOURCE: 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

Trunk will not close

First put your key in the trunk hole and turn it as if you were opening it. Make sure it did not re-lock by accident as this will prevent it from closing. If that don't work spray some WD-40 or other bolt buster on your trunk latch and take a small screwdriver and try to work it loose till it will move. One or the other should work. It's either latched already and you don't know it or it is not latching upon shutting.

Need in my trunk

Easiest and Most effective Solution is to Drill it out. Get you a Drill Bit a Little Bit Smaller than the Lock itself and Start Drilling till you get thru. BE CAREFUL though! I would HATE to hear that you Damaged that Chevelle! My Favorite too. Still got my 69' SS 396 Conv. and an 87' Grand National. Would KILL for Either One!!!!!
