If there is a recall, your local Ford dealer should fix it for free. Call them and ask. I searched the government website (safercar.gov) and the only latch-related recall I found was for the rear passenger doors of 4 and 5 door sedans. I did not find anything about the trunk latch.

Is the problem that you can not get the key to turn in the lock, or will the trunk not release when the key is turned? I assume you have also tried the inside release (if there is one)?

If you can't get the key to turn the lock, have you tried putting graphite (lock lubricant) into the lock? You can buy this at any hardware store.

Same thing happened to ours, we got in as wopflies suggested and then we put a pull cord from the bright yellow trunk release and pulled it through the back seat and tied it to one of the metal things on the back window. Now when we need to get into the trunk we open the back door and pull the cord and it pops the trunk!

If you can fold down the rear seat you can axcess the back of the trunk lock with a flat head screw driver. you might need a flash light to see the axcess point, but there is almost always a small slot for the tip of the screw driver to fit. once you find this just turn in either direction and the trunk will open. Good luck

You will have to go to a dealer & purchase a new
electrical trunk latch.

There is no work around, as you would like.

You could price a new one & one from a salvage yard

I locked my keys in my trunk and the guy came out and unlocked the car but the alarm went off and now i am not able to open the trunk from the inside


First off, check to see if you can pull down the back of the rear seat - many vehicles have this for storing longer items in the trunk. If not, you will need a locksmith to slimjim the trunk.

When you do get into the trunk, see if there's a lockout switch near the trunk latch to keep this from happening again.

The trunk on my 2000 volvo s-40 wont open


you'll need to insert your key into the trunk lock. prior to doing this you'll need to use the automatic lock on the driver side of the vehicle, hit the unluck button twice. Torn the key in the trunk to the left, you may have to slightly press the trunk button in while doing this and give it a lttle wiggle after the key has been turneed to the left push the button all the way in, if this does not work repeat the process but reverse to the right instead of the left.

This manually disables the remote lock for your trunk.
