I made a video on how I fixed that problem on my 2003 Ford Focus. I show how I had to clean the button and where I found some wires going to the latch had cracked insulation.

The fuse that powers this is a 20 amp fuse, #63, at the fuse panel at the left side of the dash. If the fuse is good then you could have a bad latch release mechanism in the trunk latch itself which would require getting into the trunk somehow. Do any of your rear seats fold forward on this vehicle to allow trunk access that way? [I don't recall if they do or not just now] Good luck, hope this helps a bit!

Key will not open trunk or switch under dash


When you push button on dash do you hear trunk actuator. Because neither key nor switch works do this. If you can enter trunk from inside car and use a flashlight look around for a pull lever or a button use it this should open the trunk. When you get open replace trunk latch mechanism

I have a 2008 mitsubishi spyder and my trunk won't open. I have pushed the button under the spoiler and the button on the keys and nothing is working. The fuses are fine however I hear the electronics...


see if you can pull the back seat down or remove and there should be a safety trunk release inside trunk which may even glow in the dark.

My 1987 Cadillac fleetwood D'elegance trunk wont open,even when i push the trunk release button in the glove department


Do you hear a click noise at all? You could try this.. One person sit on the truck lid, (heavier may be better) relieving the lift tension on the lock, while the other person push the button and hold. Sitter then hops off and pulls up on the trunk lid. If not working, Sitter person could try gently bouncing on the trunk lid while you hold the button.
Groceries still in trunk after 3 months???
If no joy, then you need someone to replace or remove the lock and pop it with a screwdriver.

What is the fuse number for opening the trunk?


It is not the fuse, the click indicates the system has power, the latch must be sticking.

Trunk release button on 2001 ford focus will not work


So your trunk release button on the dash dpesn't seem to open the trunk.
Does your key fob button open the trunk? yes....then could be problem with switch but read on.
no......are your power door locks not working as well. not working.....check
fuse, on 2001 Focus the fuse is a 20amp number 63 on the back of the fuse panel under the dash. Pop cover off and undue the rwo screws. hold plastic retainers and pull off the fuse panel from metal frame. pull fuse panel down toand turn over so you can see the fuse.check fuse. blown? yes.......replace fuse with good one. test all door locks open/close then check fuse...if its blown the problem is something to do with the door lock circuits. if the fuse is still ok...try pushing the trunk open button. fuse still ok? then I am a loss toas to whats the problem but if the fiuse blew when trying the trunk button your problem is the trunk latch circuit.
Now if the trunk latch button is popping the fuse then disconnect wiring to
trunk latch (in trunk) and try the button again. Still blowing the it is the electrical before the trunk latch unit. If it did now blow the problem is something to do with the part of the circuit you disconnected.
How to go farther and find the problem exactly is not covered in this answer. You have to take it from here. JAG

Trunk will not release with key remote but i hear click noise from fuse block on passenger side dash i have no manual so i dont know what fuse operates what also never have found any other trunck release...


If the actuator mechanism is functioning (you hear the click) the next step is to see if the cable is connected to the latch. Open your trunk and press the button - watch what happens. You may have to manually 'lock' the trunk with the trunk lid open to observe the action. You can always unlock this latch with your key if necessary.

Let me know what happens ... good luck

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
