Trunk Latch Failure

3628 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Rysiu
I'm having trouble with the trunk/hatch latch on my '04 Focus SVT. It works only intermittantly. Sometimes pressing the latch button on the dashboard does not operate the hatch solenoid, and I have to insert & turn the key in the hatch lock. Other times, I can't lock the hatch at all — the latch on the hatch refuses to catch the "post" on the car body.

Is this a common problem? How difficult to fix? How expensive if I take it to a dealer?

Bump, I have the same problem basically. I push the button, you hear the sound like the latch is working but the hatch does not open. Except I don't have any keys for it at the moment...
