It sounds like your latch has double locked. Here is the fun part, can you drop your rear seat and get into the trunk? If you can look for a tag that is possabily glowing pull it to release the emergency latch on the trunk. then with your finger lock the latch and check to see if it is leaving a large enough gap fot your pinky finger to fit in. if it is then you have reset it. if not then pull the emergency release a few more times

Trunk release button on 2001 ford focus will not work


So your trunk release button on the dash dpesn't seem to open the trunk.
Does your key fob button open the trunk? yes....then could be problem with switch but read on.
no......are your power door locks not working as well. not working.....check
fuse, on 2001 Focus the fuse is a 20amp number 63 on the back of the fuse panel under the dash. Pop cover off and undue the rwo screws. hold plastic retainers and pull off the fuse panel from metal frame. pull fuse panel down toand turn over so you can see the fuse.check fuse. blown? yes.......replace fuse with good one. test all door locks open/close then check fuse...if its blown the problem is something to do with the door lock circuits. if the fuse is still ok...try pushing the trunk open button. fuse still ok? then I am a loss toas to whats the problem but if the fiuse blew when trying the trunk button your problem is the trunk latch circuit.
Now if the trunk latch button is popping the fuse then disconnect wiring to
trunk latch (in trunk) and try the button again. Still blowing the it is the electrical before the trunk latch unit. If it did now blow the problem is something to do with the part of the circuit you disconnected.
How to go farther and find the problem exactly is not covered in this answer. You have to take it from here. JAG

How do open the trunk from inside the car The dash board button does not release the trunk


This may sound silly but do you not have a key to open the trunk or a 'FOB' that you can just press the button to open the trunk. You may want to go to your Ford dealership to get a 'FOB' or a remote, may cost you around $40.00

Maybe a fuse needs replacing......That's all I got, good luck.

The key for my ford focus will not open the hood of my car to they have another release button that i can use


I've not heard of the key fob buttons being able to open the hood. The trunk, yes, but not the hood. There should be a release knob inside th car.

Ford focus boot lock will not open using key in lock or key remote. Front panel button has not worked for a long while. The boot opens to about an inch on the latch. Is there anything I can do to release...


try spraying some lithium grease into the latch assembly... Since your latch is releasing the primary catch point and not the secondary, it means the latch itself still works... After using the grease and letting it soak for a few mins, close the trunk and pop it several times and hope it fully releases. If not, you could try putting pressure on the trunk by pulling it open as the key is turned. Don't use WD-40

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.
