You can access it thru trunk.Just lower seat and inside trunk you will see a yellow T handle.Pull T handle to open trunk.
You would add freon at the suction accumulator which you have to remove the left front wheel then remove the fender liner and it is behind this.

    Is this a coupe,3 door, or 4 door sedan?

    Here is your problem. The trunk release is controlled by the security module,the release button's function is to send a ground signal to the security module then it sends a signal to the trunk release solenoid.The key has to be in the on postion for this to work.

    If this is a coupe(2dr) or a 3 door then the seat release is a button beside the head rest. If this is a 4 door then the seat release handles are in the trunk. So if this is a 4 door you are out of luck.

    I was looking at the wiring schematic and I am not sure if this will work but you can try it. Take a jumper wire and put power to fuse 63 (20amp) fuse in the interior fuse panel.This may power up the security module and then press the trunk release button.

    I looked at it again just to make sure that it was not a typo and it is fuse 63.I looked at pic of the fuse panel and it does not show a fuse 63. I thought maybe it was a miss print so I looked at an 02 model and it shows the same thing. So I looked at copy of owners manual and there it states that this fuse is located on the backside of the fuse panel. I tried to find a pic for you but I could not find one.

Fuse 63 is on the back of the fuse box all by itself

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

Heyyi have an 2004 ford focus and i cant unlock my trunk so i was needing to know how to get in the bak seat

Question is why cant you unlock trunk? Ok in the focus on the inside of the trunk you have the unlock for the seats which would mean that you would need to be able to open trunk. So maybe i can help you figure your trunk out. Get me more info on why cant you use a key and if the button on the dash works to pop trunk or not. I will be more than happy to help.

Locked trunk

There should be a button on th dashboard to open the trunk. I would think the emergency release is for the fuel filler flap. Is the key going in the lock? maybe it just needs a squirt of wd40?

The ford locks can be taken apart and made to fit any key, by rearranging the tumblers in the lock.
Any decent garage would be able to do this for you.
