I bought a used 04 and when I took delivery I couldn't open the tailgate.
The non-Ford dealer was clueless when it came to helping me so I looked at it myself.
There is a small plastic access cover right above the mechanism on the inside of the hatch. It is about 1.5" by 1.5" square. Pop it off and drown the lock with WD40 to see if you can free it iu.
I finally got mine to open and then removed the inner panel to partially reveal the mechanism. It looked like it was brought up from the Titanic. It was completely rusted.
Seems that this model has a problem with water getting into the lock as it pools in the area where the catch is.
$167.00 later, tax in, and the problem is fixed as long as you continue to spary the h_ _ _ out of it with WD40

SOURCE: passenger door wont open
Gonna have to try to remove door panel and access the rod that runs from interior handle to lock mechanism, or try to unlock door from outside with a slimjim tool.

There is a cable that runs from the key cylinder to the latch mechanism. There are clips that hold the cable housing in place, and if one of those comes loose then turning the key just moves the housing without releasing the latch. Check the clip closest to the latch. To get the trunk open drop the back seat, crawl in, and pull on the cable.
It is also possible that the cable is broken or damaged and needs to be replaced -- I assume you will then need to replace the enrite assembly.
