Focus mk2 boot staying locked

Recommended Posts

Hi all , 

When I unlock my car with the key fob the doors open fine but the boot stays locked , I have to press the boot button twice to unlock it , it used to all open , doors and boot together but started doing this now .

anyone had a similar problem ? I've changed the fob battery but still the same .

Thanks Frank

This sounds like a failure of the boot release button in the tailgate. It might be water ingress into the button, which I think is a known issue in these models, or a fracture in the wiring between tailgate and body.

There's obviously nothing wrong with the boot latch or remote since two presses unlock it ok.

So when you press the boot release on the boot itself it doesn't respond?

No , I have to give two  clicks on the fob boot button , it won't open with the boot release

I have just noticed my 16 plate tit focus starting to do the same thing. I will wait until service is due to get it fixed. Not that much of an issue for me at this time.
