      Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation


      • Adds Convenience
      • OEM Switch/Button
      • No Wire Cutting Required
      • Fits 2005 to 2009 Mustangs


      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.

        Wiring instructions are unclear.

        The only problem I had was finding the correct wire to connect to.

        Pretty straightforward

        Installation was pretty straightforward except for they call it pink where it's really closer to white. Would have been a 30 minute job but I had to go to the store to buy more butt connectors.

        Well Made

        Was a little bit of a pain to install only because of drilling threw the metal brace behind the plastic. Works and looks good.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      Do you run the wiring all the way to the trunk switch or to a connection under the dash without having to route under the carpet ?

      • Hello! This switch does not get wired the whole way to the trunk. For complete step by step instructions, please refer to this link

      When hooking up the switch, the wire being connected to? Is it the same wire (white and pink stripe wire) for all years 2005 thru 2009? Is it the same if it is a convertible? Want to use it in 2007 Base Mustang convertible.

      • The color of the wires should all be the same for 2005-2009 models, however, Ford is known to change colors here and there. If you are having difficulties, please refer to step 8: "If there is a problem, it is most likely due to improper grounding (the eyelet wire) or the quick connector did not cut into the white / pink wire correctly. Check connections, and retest. If you are unable to identify the correct wire, disconnect battery, and move the quick connector to the following location: White/pink Trunk/Hatch Release Wire Located in the Passenger Kick Panel on backside of SJB, C2280c plug, pin 21. The SJB (Smart Junction Box) is in the passenger kick panel, and must be unbolted to access the C2280c connector on the back side. The C2280c connector is the third (from the bottom) rectangular connector in a row; it is a 52 pin connector. Reassemble, reconnect battery, and test. "

      The pics submitted by people appear to have two different "cars" on the trunk release button. Which one is shipped, the "detailed" or the "simplistic" one?

      • The design of this button has been updated, and it has a more detailed car on the button.
