Simple solution - your tbird has a mechanical trunk lock behind your driver seat on the face of the package shelf. Just use your key to open it.

this This is what you have to do.Go to the hardware store and get a spring just like in the pic maybe smaller. Put the bottom side just like in the pic and the top side of the spring on the door cilynder. And you are done.

The car has not been driven enough to make the computer ready for emissions testing. you will need to complete a certain drive cycle for each emissions component to be tested by the computer. it is a variation of highway and non highway driving. you may need to go to a shop and have the computer read to see which component is not ready. It may be faulty

This is the biggest flaw in emissions testing. It takes 4 tanks of fuel and 1000 miles of wasteful driving to reset the computer on the FORD TAURUS (I've got a 2000). So much for pollution control!
