      Review & Installation Video

      If you’re still scratching your head about the lack of an interior trunk release button on your S197 Mustang, you’re certainly not alone, well, thanks to this very budget friendly center console trunk release kit for your 05-09 Mustang, that issue is a thing of the past. We all know what a pain it is not to have an interior trunk release button, especially if you’ve lost your key fob, or if you have an aftermarket alarm that doesn’t include a trunk release button, this product is definitely for you. On the other hand, if you do have a functioning key fob, it’s hard to beat the convenience of an interior mounted trunk release button. This kit does include everything you need to install the trunk release button into your center console without the need for any drilling or wire cutting. The kit does include this OEM Ford access panel, which has already been predrilled for you and includes this push button style switch. The kit does also include a wire harness, connectors, and all the quick splice connectors needed for the install, making it an extremely painless job that should only take you about 30 minutes. You will need to run the wires to the passenger side kick panel, and then connect the cables to the two trunk release wires but everything else is a complete piece of cake. So if you don’t have a trunk release button on your key fob and you’re tired of getting out of the car to open the trunk, or on the other hand if you’re not a big fan of those glovebox mounted kits, then be sure to check out this very affordable, center console mounted trunk release kit, available right here at

        Trunk Switch

        Just never understood why these didn't come from the factory with a trunk switch, easy to install and works great.

        Why Didn’t Ford Think of This?

        This “mod” went in like it should have been there all along! The flat plate in the console served no purpose at all! Once the release button was installed, it looked like it should have from the beginning! Kudos to American Muscle!

        Console hidden, trunk release button, Kit.

        Fit perfectly, wire splice instructions are very clear and precise, easy to install, took 15 min!!!. Strongly recommend for my fellow stand community. Key fobs die out, it’s a little annoying to get out and have to open the trunk by key. Just get it and install already, don’t be a lazy bum!.

        Center Console Mounted Trunk Release Kit

        Great Idea- Ease of Installation Greatly Exaggerated. This trunk release was a complete waste of time and money. Installation did not work, and a Ford dealership wouldn't even touch it. Total waste.

        Worked perfectly!

        After the initial disassembly of the interior the installation is smoothe and the results were even better. I love the look and functionality of this!

      Same as glove compartment wire? I've tried the trunk release buttons that mount in the glove box and have found that i have a wiring issue and neither have worked. does this splice into the same wire (under the passenger kick plate) or somewhere else?

      • It does splice into wiring harness inside passenger kick panel. What my bud and I had to do was attach a temporary wire to the wire on switch. We then ran the wire back through trunk and temporarily attached it to the trunk wire. This told us that it did indeed work and which wire to splice to inside kick panel. We then unattached the temporary wire and found the correct wire inside kick panel. Kind of confusing as there was more than one wire with the color code needed. Hope this helps. Dave

      Might sound ignorant but this will not fit my new edge, correct?

      • Correct, the Center Console Mounted Trunk Release Kit is designed specifically for 2005-2009 Mustangs and would not work on a 1999-2004 Mustang.
