Wife locked keys in trunk! Need help!

My wife owns a 2005 Mustang Convertible and my question is does the rear seat fold down so I can gain access to the trunk? I cant seem to get it to fold down. I really dont want to pay a 100 dollars to get a locksmith to come out. This really sucks. any suggestions would help.

I know the coupe seat pulls forward on the drivers side which will provide access for a very small person to access the trunk. Not sure about the vert but it should be the same... Good luck

On the 2010 Vert you need the Key (spot on the left side of the drivers side rear seat) to gain access to the trunk.
That is going by the Owners Manual.

Back seat doesn't access the trunk on verts.

You can find the trunk lock wire in the harness behind the passenger side kick panel.

If you ground that wire, the trunk lock will open.

It's a pink and white striped wire, if I remember right. That's the one that people use for adding a trunk lock switch.

Ok, just checked.

Skinny white wire, pink stripe.

Use a quick splice to add a wire to the white/pink one. Touch the wire to ground to pop the trunk.

Add a momentary contact switch to that wire later for a remote trunk release mod.

both seats flip down on the coupe, ive picked up some good size boxes in the trunk if you splice in the wire in the pass kick panel, it would be time to install that trunk switch i only got one key with my car, first thing i did was get a spare set

That does suck.

Mr. Ugly is right, the seats do not fold down on the '05-'09 vert and the only inexpensive solution is grounding the trunk release wire.

I copied others (see pic) and added a keyless entry keypad on the back side of the gas filler door.
