Question about 2005 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Get truck release to function with key on.

My 2005 is a work vehicle (police) and I would like to get the trunk release button to work only when the key is on instead of all the time. Is there an easy way to wire this up.

Trunk locks not opening


This is very complex if your not familiar with how Class 2 serial data communications work . When you press that trunk lid release button it sends a low voltage signal to the BCM - body control module. Here is how the factory service info. says how it works .
When the vehicle is in park and the trunk release switch is pressed it grounds the rear compartment lid release switch input in the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM then sends a Class 2 message to the Remote Function Actuator (RFA). The RFA supplies an internal ground for the coil side of the rear compartment lid release relay activating the relay. The rear compartment lid release actuator receives battery voltage through the 15 A trunk release fuse when the relay closes. Ground is supplied by G400.
Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a dealer or some other qualified repair shop that has a factory scan tool or a professional grade type .
You could check the TRK/REL relay in the rear fuse/ relay box .Because you can't test the class 2 data to the rear integrated module. Fuse Block Rear

I don't have a key for the trunk and the trunk release lever is not working. How can I get the trunk open?


The rear seat backing will have to be removed to access the paneling and lock assembly to open if the lever/remote is non functioning. Sometimes banging with your fist just above the lock while someone operates the release lever will open the trunk

If release lever is not functional, use key. If key will not turn in cylinder, spray WD-40 into cylinder and use sawing motion to get key inserted and continue sawing motion to free up lock wafers internal to cylinder so it will turn with key. If this process is not effective, you will need to remove rear seat to access paneling to trunk lock and open accordinly

Could be the receiver too.
