    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 AmericanMuscle.com

    Adds Extra Convenience. For some unexplained reason Ford did not install interior remote trunk release switches on the 2005 to 2009 S197 model Mustangs, but now you can add a Mustang Trunk Release Kit yourself for extra convenience.

    OEM Fit and Finish. Designed to install easily by tapping into the existing stock wiring harness, this Trunk Release Kit seamlessly integrates into the cars center console for a clean, factory style appearance. That means there is no drilling or wire cutting required for installation.

    Kit Includes. The Center Console Mounted Trunk Release Kit includes an OEM Ford access panel with pre-drilled hole and switch, high quality wiring harness with connectors, all the necessary wire taps and mounting hardware, and a detailed 4 page installation manual.

    Application. This Center Console Trunk Release Kit is specifically designed for use on all 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, and Shelby models.

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

    WindySN95

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

    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?

    jonnyb8891

    • 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

      Console mounted trunk release kit

      Good product. I own a 2007 GT500 convertible. I like to leave the top down while it’s parked and leave my belongings in the trunk. I wired the trunk release kit to only open when the ignition is in the ON position.

      Massive Fail

      We installed the product to a 2008 Ford Mustang according to instructions. after failure, we delved into the troubleshooting steps and emailed Starkey products. all they offered was return instructions. I was determined to get the product installed in my Mustang. So I took it to the dealer and about 2 hours later she returned with the product installed. I was told he had to re-wire the product to make it work. " the mechanic". I just wish Starkey had put in the work necessary to make this a flawless install. it cost $174.33 in labor charges plus the cost of the trunk release button. but it was installed and working. Now we followed their instructions to the letter. We are not dumb, but it fails to install in the 2007, 2008 model as per the instructions. so DO NOT BUY this product, unless you are willing to shell out more money than needed. Starkey should have offered to at least send back the money for the product as compensation for the failed product instructions.

      Just what Ford should have put in.

      This is something Ford should have done. Works great! Install took like 20 minutes and it looks factory. Only thing I would change is switch it to the other button that has the Mustang on it. That would look really cool and factory. Thanks AM!!!!

      Good product. Requires work.

      The center console box has a small plastic panel that pops right out. This spot makes a lot more sense than underneath the glove box like the factory did on 00 to 04 body style. Threading the wire to get this installed takes some work. Took me about 45 min to do it the professional way.

      OEM fit and finish. Very nice product and a good way to replace a lost or missing center console access panel. Button is nothing fancy but all the wiring is done well.

      This product is amazing! Why didn't ford include this from the factory?! The install was super simple, it provides easy access to the trunk, and it looks like it came from the factory! I would definitely recommend this to anyone that didn't already have one.

      I spent 5 hrs and $20, and gave up

      Install is on a 2007 Mustang V6. The recommended wire color to connect in the door base did not work. The second suggestion could not be located however there were many pair wrapped in black electrical tape that would require removal and probably wire damage. Frustrating failure.

      Great addition to my '07 GT

      Great addition and convenience to have a trunk release in the car. Hidden discreetly from view, the piece fit in perfectly with no installation issues. Wiring instructions were spot on and had everything up and running within an hour. If you're looking for a trunk release, this is the one!
