Hey guys I have heard that problems involving the trunk and its locking mechanism are common with the focus but i was wondering if anyone has any tips on fixing this issue. I ended up braking the original one open and replacing it with one from a scrap yard so now my keys don't match and the remote doesn't work either. I talked to a locksmith and he said that he could probably get the trunk open and match the tumblers to my keys but i was curious if there's any way to make the power option work again.

If scrap part has a bad motor section in it then need new latch again.

Can't guess.

If the power latch was working before the new assy. was installed, and quit as soon as the swap was made - the new latch assy prob. is bad. If it's been not working with either, could be switch, latch, or even wiring.
