Can you open the boot with the remote on its own, with the car locked and alarm on? Ford Focus 2009

yes you can on the mk2.5,
but if the alarm is an aftermarket one then you may need to de-activate it before you open the boot.
i can tell from this topic that you are a very adventures kind of person ;)

That's correct.
First notch on pull is front fogs and second notch is rear.
You can also do it on the sidelight level, no need for full headlights.

To open the boot with the remote will depend on how the key is set up, sometimes its one press or it could be to clicks as if using a PC mouse.

One thing I forgot to mention, if you release the boot lid with the remote and then fail to open the boot within about 30 seconds, the when you do lift it the alarm will sound, if this happens you need to use the key to unlock the drivers door to cancel it.

The standard is first press for drivers door and second press for all doors, it's an anti tamper setting - the same for the Mk2 + too.

you can remove multi lock by perfoming a series of actions with the fob,
i think you press lock for 30 seconds or somthing then the indicators will flash to alert you of the setting so then multi lock will be de-activated. and the same again to activate it.
