where is the trunk button 2012 focus?

If I am not mistaken there is no trunk button in the car, just on the keys....

That wouldn't be to bad, but I can't pop the trunk with the keys in the ignition, which sucks because many times I stay in the car while my wife runs into a store.

Am I missing something or is there really no trunk release, other then the one on the key.

I don't think there is a trunk release in the car. I have also been unable to locate it if there is one. I haven't tried using the release on the fob (have the keyless start) but there is a button on the trunk itself to release it (the Fusion doesn't have that...) the car just has to be unlocked to use it.

I'm still getting used to the unlock button being on the center stack only.

I believe there is a soft-touch liftgate / trunk release button hidden in the trim above the rear license plate.

EDIT: that was quick! Yeah, like misfire said in post #3.

I've got a really dumb question. Does the trunk open by itself or do you still have to lift it open after unlocking it? The reason I ask is that the sedan version will automatically pop the trunk correct?

It does not lift itself. It is entirely too heavy for that.

Yes, well only the 2013 models have this switch, the 2012 models only have the button underneath the lip of the deck lid or above the license plate on the hatch and the IKT or IA remotes.

This is something that they majorly screwed up on the 2012s. Glad they fixed it for the 2013s.
