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 it myself?

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

Ford focus lock broken?


This sounds like a bad lock actuator, this is the part that locks the door with the power locks button or the remote. you will need to remove the rear door panel and dissconnect the actuator, this way you will be able to lock it with the key but the power lock will not work on the door,

You will probably need assistance with the repair, but first try this. Spray some spray lubricant like WD40 into the keyhole on the exterior using the tiny straw provided with the lubricant can. Try locking and unlocking manually using your key in the outside key lock and try activating the handle to open the door while you have someone pull in and out on the door. Once it's open, you may need to remove the interior panel to see if something is rusted, worn or bent.

programming of remote :- ( you will need all your remotes for this )
insert a programmed key into the ignition.
turn key to position 2 & back four times within 6 second.
when you turn the ignition off after the fourth turn you should hear a beep to tell you your in programming mode for the next 10 seconds.
press any button on your new remote ( a tone will be heard when the car accepts the button press ) now do the same with your old remotes too.
either switch the ignition back on or wait until the timer runs out on the programming mode & your done

Trunk does not open using dash button or button on


Check your fuse box, look on the diagram and locate the fuse (10 amp most likely) for the auto trunk. The clicking is the relay, it also operates the keylees entry for the doors.

Good luck
