I have a 2011 ford focus having trouble opening the boot lid the number plate light is not working and the third brake light what is on the boot lid is not working can anyone tell me the problem

there are a set of wires on the right arm of the trunk lid that get too close to it and end up getting cut. you will have to fold the rear seat down and climb in the trunk to get to the emergency open cable to open the trunk, then you should be able to splice the wires back together and zip tie them up out of the way, just make sure you leave enough slack in the wires so you can still open the trunk.

My 97 honda civic has been in an accident before now my trunk doesn't close completely and water gets in my trunk how do I fix that

The fix depends on what was bent - the deck lid or the back of the car. To find out, clean the rubber seal with brake fluid on a rag, then dry the seal with another clean rag. Put a small amount of motor oil on your finger tip and put a small line of oil on the top of the seal, making sure you have enough oil on the seal to wet it all the length of the seal.
Now close the deck lid GENTLY. Open the lid and inspect the surface of the lid that contacted the seal, as well as the seal. The area of the lid that is dry is where the lid and seal are not contacting.
If you cannot determine where there is oil or not, you can try putting a small amount of fine ground dirt on top of the oil before closing the lid. If you can see bends in the deck lid surface, replacing the lid should fix the problem. If the deck lid is straight, then you'll need to have a body shop fix the car ( expensive). It is also possible the seal is flat, torn, or just worn out - in which case replacing the seal will cure your problem.
Hope this helps!!

Water in the trunk of my 2002 intrepid

If you notice it after it rains, it could be a poorly sealing gasket for the trunk lid, or a leaking tail light.

On my 98 intrepid, the trunk lid will be released occasionally when I step on the brake pedal

There is a short in the tail light wires. Have someone hold the brake pedal down, and get the trunk open and access to the wires, now go along the harness and gently wiggle the wires and see if you can get the trunk latch to release.

I need to remove the lock on the trunk of my 96 intrepid. The key is broken in it. What size socket do I need to remove the tumblem assembly? Thanks

the tumbler is usualy held in place by a clip made of spring steel. Pulling it downward from the back side of the tumbler will release the lock from the trunk lid.

yes, a sticking brake caliper or the rubber brake line will cause it to pull when you let off the gas. I suggest replacing both calipers, brake lines and pads. That should cure the problem.

Trunk release, interior lights, locks etc doesn't work

You might want to check with the dealer to see if you have the correct key. You could try some WD-40 on the lock. As far as getting to your trunk, you could go in from the back seat.
Did you check the circuit going to your lights with a meter?
