A lot of fords now have gas struts that take the weight of the tailgate. One (or both) of the struts has gone. Replace both and the tailgate will stay up on its own

I think on the ford focus the boot has a spring that is set up to pull the boot up when you open it.

If your boot is not staying open it may be that the spring has either come off or broken. I think there may be a spring either side. One way to check the set up so you know what your looking for would be to go to a dealership and look at a new car - look around - tell them your just looking if they ask and the open the boot and check the spring attachments. When you go back to your own car check to see if the same springs are in place. If one is missing then at least you know what you need.
You can go to the Service desk in the dealership and order the spring or at least check how much it is.

BOOT OPEN but not open warning light on dashboard say this with red warning light


The sensor is located and probably built into the boot latch. The sensor is good because the light goes off if you close it slowly. the latch is just worn out with that particular part. Replace the latch. It is not hard to replace if you have a few hand tools.

Home link system program?


  1. Turn off the engine.
  2. Erase the factory test codes by pressing buttons 1 and 3. Release the buttons when the two green lights begin to flash (about 20 seconds ).
  3. Choose one of the three buttons to train. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches (5-14 cm) away from the lower left corner of the EVIC display while keeping the display in view.
  4. Simultaneously press and hold both the desired Transmitter button and the hand-held transmitter button. After a short time, the message TRAINING will show on Transmitter display. Do not release the buttons until the message TRAINED appears on the display (this may take as long as 60 seconds ), release both the Transmitter and hand-held transmitter buttons.
  5. Press and hold the just-trained Transmitter button. TRANSMIT should appear on the display. If your device activates when the Transmitter button is depressed and released, programming is complete. To train the other buttons, repeat the process. Be sure to keep your hand-held transmitter in case you need to retrain the universal transmitter. NOTE: If the message TRANSMIT appears on the Transmitter display but your device does not activate, the device may be equipped with a "rolling code" system. Continue with steps six through eight below to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped device (most commonly a garage door opener).
  6. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit) in the garage, locate the "learn" or "smart" button. This can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the motor-head unit. Firmly press and release the "learn" or "smart" button. (The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.) NOTE: There are 30 seconds in which to initiate the next step.
  7. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds and release the programmed Transmitter button. Repeat the "press/hold/release" sequence a second time, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to complete the programming process.
  8. Transmitter should now activate your rolling code equipped device. To program the remaining two buttons, simply repeat the process.
