    Features & Details

    • 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.

    Ask a Question

    Is it possible to install this button on the OEM headlight foglight switch?


    • Yes, it would be possible to install the SHR Mustang Trunk Release Kit on the OEM headlight foglight switch area!

    This is a follow up, I pushed the wrong key and submitted an incomplete question. How is the switch retained in the dash? The tabs on the switch don't look like they will fit through the drilled hole.


    • The SHR Mustang Trunk Release Kit can be installed by drilling one hole into the glove box. You may need to turn the button slightly in order for it to fit snug. The link below will take you to a step by step installation guide which will go over drilling the hole and properly installing the button.

    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. "

    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

    how long is the button wire?


    • The wire included is long enough for a proper install and should still have some slack.

    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.

      Awesome product

      I installed the release button by the light switch. It took more time to install, with some alterations to the back of the panel. But was well worth it.

      Much Needed Item

      Got this to add a trunk button to facilitate opening trunk w\o either using a key or remote. Had already ran and made wiring connections for button prior during a security system install so installation was a snap. Had almost locked my keys\remote in the trunk of my car while installing my MMD Rear Window Louver....this action sealed the decision to get this trunk button installed. Installed mine on the headlight switch panel as others have's the logical place for a trunk release button. Love it!

      Trunk Button

      Works great. A bit of a pain finding the right spot for the button without hitting any metal. The white pink wire is a tad hard to find, there's a few that look identical.

      Simple installation and it looks great.

      I have a 2006 Mustang and I installed the button exposed between the glove box and the silver panel on the upper dash that covers the passenger airbag, just to the right of the radio area. I used a 3/4 stepped drill bit and the installation took about an hour only because I have bad knees and have to stop and stand up frequently. It looks great where it is. Unfortunately I see no way to attach a photo. Looks factory installed.

      needed from factory

      Having a convertible, I understand why these may not have came originally to the car. But placing it is a location that can't be seen does the trick. Just an added detail.

      Worth it

      This is totally worth the buy. First thing to note, though: it does not look like it does in the picture. It is actually a really good quality flat button with more of a "racecar" picture on it (there's customer photos that show it). It is easy to install; I installed it next to the headlight and interior light switches. I don't like the idea of it in the glovebox, and there was a perfect spot on the lights panel. The only somewhat difficult thing about this, is the wiring. All you have to do is connect it to the "white/pink" wire on the passenger side, but I read about a lot of people having problems finding the correct wire, and I even had some trouble myself. The instructions say to connect it to a white wire with a pink stripe. I found this, but after further inspection, it connected to the wire harness in the trunk, but did not come out of the harness to actually go through to something in the trunk. The white and pink wire may look white and purple/lavender. Also, do not get confused between a white wire with a pink/purple stripe, and a pink/purple wire with a white stripe. This all sounds confusing but I'm sure you'll have better luck than I did. That being said, do not let this hold you back from purchasing this button. It's awesome. When I pressed it and heard the trunk release I was SO happy.

      Clean little button. Bad directions.

      Wasn't the button that was pictured when I purchased online. Clean, simple. I'm ok with it. The problem is that there are metal brackets everywhere they suggest you drill for the button placement. Everywhere. They don't give you enough wire to route to alternate spots that have power there as well.

      SHR Mustang Trunk Release

      Great addition and very easy to install. About 30 minutes to install. Works great. Only issue was that instructions said to instal on left side of glove box and on our 2007 GT/CS convertible both sides of the glovebox are fully backed with metal. Had to mount it up top

      2007 Mustang wiring Difference

      The wiring on my 2007 Mustang was not as described (no white and pink wire under passenger door plate). Looked at wire at Trunk release Orange and Pink. Tapped Orange and Pink wire under passenger door plate nothing happened. Read where to pull fuse panel under kick plate passenger side then look on back for 52 pin connector third from left pin #21 to tap. Tapped #21 pin wire not work. Found a wiring diagram on line finally. Showed White and Violet wire is tap at connector. Tapped White and Violet wire pressed button which I had already grounded and "Pop" went the trunk! After all the figuring out that "Pop" sounded better that a Champagne bottle on New Years! Not sure why my 2007 was so different than instructions but read where others have had problems with 2007 wiring being different as well. Made for an interesting afternoon. Joe

      This trunk release kit is very easy to install. I did have to slice in some extra wire becouse of the where i chose to put it but besides that no problems.The botton is also slightly different than what is shown in the pictures, it has an updated image on the botton that I like it better.
