My 2013 Ford Focus trunk keeps popping up while I am driving. I am sick of it. It is going to get me or my kids killed having to jump out and shut it in the middle of nowhere on the dark roads.

    I owned a Focus and had the trunk trouble also. It turned out mine was not shut when I took off. I just thought it was. My Mustang does the same thing.
    I THINK I have it shut,but unless I lift up on it to check it,it might be unlatched.
    The latch may just need lubed and adjusted. don-ohio (:^)

Try for adjustment, cable adjustment if cable operated opening, or electric short if solenoid operated
it could be knocked down a bit making it had to latch

Or it may just need adjustment. Take it for repair.

If you are this concerned please seek a repair shop's help and get it repaired, the problem is likely just a faulty trunk latch.

Locked my keys in my 2013 ford focus se, but trunk is in fact open. Is there a way to get into my car through my trunk


There is really no easy way to get in through the trunk, you can take a wedge and put it in the top rear side of the door, push it in until you have just enough of a gap to get in a coat hanger and push the unlock button

Theh trunk on my 2013 ford focus randomly pops open while driving on highways , what could the cause be and how can i fit it ?


The striker assembly may be out of adjustment. This is the metal piece that the trunk lock assembly grasps when the lid is closed. These strikers usually have bolts that can be loosened allowing the striker to move up and down to obtain proper adjustment so the trunk will open/close properly

The trunk on my 2013 Ford focus randomly pops open while driving on highways, what could the cause be and how can I fix it?


If y.ou have an electric release for the trunk, then unplug it and use the key. If the trunk stays shut, then its an electrical problem. If the trunk still opens by itself it is mechanical and use the gap the other expert recommended. If this a new vehicle for you there could have been collision damage in that area with poor adjustments or cracked parts.

2009 Ford Focus, Emergency Trunk release was pulled when heavy backpack was thrown in trunk and now trunk won't fully close. Car is showing the "trunk ajar" button. Is there any way to fix it?


yes. The Ford family has had this issue for a few years now. it is caused when there is too much in the trunk or for the sable wagons the storage area. when the trunk lid or hatch back is slammed repeatedly, it can cause the steel stud that latches the trunk shut to bend a little. the easiest way to fix this issue is to get a medium to large pry bar and shift it back into position. this will cause the sensor switch (for the door a jar lamp) to go out when it is shut.
