Hmm not sure on the boot, but there is a mode on the Focus where you can change which doors unlock when you press unlock on remote.

From memory, I believe the options are:

1) Unlocks all doors and boot

2) Unlocks driver door, and I believe boot. - Handy for someone like me with no family (don't need every door to unlock every time, it will only wear out the locking mechanisms.)

I think the way you activate the two modes is by holding the unlock button on your fob. There is some kind of combination. I would check your manual as it mentions it in there somewhere.

If you don't have a key with the buttons on, maybe you could try disconnecting the car battery and re-connecting? Otherwise, it looks like you might need to deal with a locksmith.

Hope that helps.
