  • No wire cutting required

Extra Convenience. For some odd reason Ford did not install interior remote trunk releases on the 2005 to 2009 S197 model Mustangs, but now you can add a SHR Mustang Trunk Release Kit yourself for extra convenience. OEM Fit and Finish. Designed to install in minutes with only the need to drill one hole in the interior of the glove box for a clean factory appearance, this kit includes an OEM factory switch button, soldered connections, and heat shrunk protection of the terminal ends. And all the wiring is done in the front passenger area, with no cutting or wiring to the back of the car required.

Application. This Silver Horse Racing Trunk Release Kit is specifically designed for use on all 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs.

Does it work without key in the ignition ? Hi, does this button work if you car is not running ? For example, if the Mustang is unlock, but you have still your key in your pocket and you want to open the trunk with this button ? Is that work ? And also if you key are stuck in the trunk, can you get your key with this button ? Thanks !

  • Yes to all your questions. I installed mine two years ago and it works just fine with or without the key.

    What they don't say up front

    December 19, 2009

    This upgrade is pretty simple, IF you have something that enables you to drill a 3/4" hole through plastic AND a metal bracket that braces the glove box. A 3/4" drill bit is not something I had and the instructions that came with the kit suggested using a step drill bit (something that Sears and HomeDepot sell for around $45.00). I was lucky and found a step drill bit at "Harbor Freight" for about $7. Since it maxed out at the desired diameter, drilling the appropriate hole size in both the plastic and metal bracket behind it was a pretty simple task (once I had shopped for and purchased the step drill bit). Also, the instructions with the kit don't mention the metal bracket at all, much less the fact that there is already a hole in the bracket (1/4") that can be opened up to the desired diameter. For the kit to be complete, they should include a cheap step drill bit since a lot of us shade tree mechanics don't have 3/4" drill bits in our tool boxes. And, the instructions should have mentioned the bracket and the existing hole. But, once I had the hole drilled, the install was a snap.

    Great Product. Okay Instructions. Poor Location

    May 17, 2012

    First, this is a perfect product and it works great in my 2005 GT...Thanks to SHR and AM. Now for the useful info: First, thinking a little bit about the ergonomics of why I wanted an interior trunk switch, I realized that putting it in the glove box would be a pain in the you-know-what, since I'm usually hunting for the blue trunk button on my key remote as my kids are approaching the car with an arm full of wet swim gear...I decided that hiding the switch under the glove box door would be equally annoying. I explored the back of the open area on the right side of the headlight switch, as I've seen it done in photos...I'm an artist with a Dremel tool andI wouldn't attempt it...could easily be replacing the headlight panel. So the most convenient place I found is directly under the steering column on the lower dash panel, about 1/2" from the edge (close enough to the edge to not be a clearance problem for the steel frame under the panel). A 3/4" wood bit worked perfectly in the soft dash panel plastic. The hole looks factory. Wires are easily routed under the dash tunnel, below the steering column, behind the stereo to the right kick panel and door sill. You'll only have to splice in about a foot of extra hot wire to make it all the way. There's also a grounding screw just to the right of the steering column under the dash, like it was meant to be. Final issue: There are about six "pink and white" wires in the bundle under the right door sill...The directions should say "it's the only white wire with a tiny pink stripe!" It took a frustrating while with a continuity tester to figure this one out. I believe installing in this location is not only easier than the glove box option, but a much more ergonomic and convenient location for use. Switch works great!

    Great device! Was very easy to install, I placed the activation button in the console that made the wiring even easier. Only need help from wife to find the white wire with pink stripe!

    Been wanting this for some time!

    April 01, 2010

    Almost every time I fumble with my key-remote to unlock the trunck, especially when the keys are in the ignition, I tell myself to get one of these. Well, I did. Very cool! Install instructions are great EXCEPT, 1) my 2009 required the install at the top of glove box, not the side and 2) you cannot install the ground wire in the obvious spot...the box will not close. I used the screw in bottom left of box and it worked great. Also worth noting is the wire you splice into. Do not think white and pink wire, there are a few. Think white wire with pink stripe. Install took about 15-20 minutes after I had the tools.

    Fits and looks great. Easy install in my 08 GT500. Do not even attempt to do this without the proprer graduated 3/4' bit. Take your time and it will be super easy.

    Easy install

    February 05, 2010

    As some have mentioned, a step drill bit is needed ( or a 3/4" bit, but I thought the step bit worked amazingly). I installed this switch to the right of my headlight controls and it works perfectly there. One thing, the picture displayed here is actually not what the button looks like. It is an all black button with a trunk symbol, which goes well with the black interior. The switch itself worked perfectly and I only had to extend the wire about two feet since I didnt install it in the glove box. Always a pleasure working with AM
