Question about 2004 Ford Freestar
It is difficult to access the rear door latch. The actuator or the cable may be at fault. The process is bit painful. Contact a repairer to open the trunk for you.

I have had the same problem with my 2005. I don't know how but my 7 year old keeps pulling it off and I took pictures so I know how to do it from now on. It's easy to do without affecting any vital parts, i.e., the spring.
You take the back panel off consisting of 2-9mm screws and 2-philips head screws. Careful pulling the bottom portion off not to rip off any posts.
Once inside there is a grey bar that runs from one side of where the handle belongs to the other. This is the part that has the spring on it. Insert your handle all the way in and once there pry gently the grey bar until its prongs are in place. The spring is located just around the area that is flat coming off the grey bar and has a noticable spot for it. Also, off of the grey bar is a black plastic tab that is supposed to hold the bar from shifting back and forth, but gives easily. So you don't encounter the problem again you might try to gently bend it back to original shape.

SOURCE: trunk lide wont open
Try to apply pressure from the top of the trunk and push short burst while using the key, If this doese not work you can try to enter from the rear seat taking out the bolts for the rear back rest.

I believe that one of your tires is low on air causing the pressure monitor to kick in. Check all your tires to make sure the inflated to the proper PSI which will be located on one of the door jambs
