Starkey Trunk Release Button Kit V6/GT/GT500 2005-2009 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install! My son, who isn't mechanically minded, installed this release in about 30 minutes in his 2006 Mustang thanks to the video. The install is very simple and neat. The button looks like it was original to the car. This solves an issue this car has had since manufacture. We are very satisfied with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install with instructions and video Very easy to install and I was very surprised it went so well on my 2005 Mustang, thought for sure I would run into trouble as the car is 11 years old, but I was wrong. It all went well.

Will this button work without the ACC power?  I have a convertible and I am bothered by the idea that anyone could have trunk access if I left the top down.

I have installed the release in my 2009 mustang per the instructions and video but it isn't working. Any clue?

Asked by: Tinataz
The wiring might be the issue. Check through that again.

Starkey Trunk Release Button Kit V6/GT/GT500 2005-2009 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: Back in the eighties, Ford started adding glove box mounted trunk releases to all their Mustangs. By 2005, they all came with these keyless entry systems that had a trunk release button right on them. While this is a nice feature, many people felt Ford made an oversight by getting rid of the trunk release button inside the car.

Starkey Products has this nice solution. It its all 2005 to 2009 Mustangs, installs easily, doesn't require any drilling. Starkey includes detailed instructions. The button assembly itself, which is going to mount in your center console, wire taps and even includes zip ties.

For this installation, you need a Phillips head screwdriver, a small pick, and we recommend a set of wire-stripping pliers. We'll be installing the trunk release button kit on a 2005 Mustang GT.

The first step is to remove the shift knob. Once we have the knob unthreaded, we're going to remove the boot. Simply push it on the side, and lift up. Then you want to open up your console; two Phillips head screws located in the back here, and remove your console plate, simply pulling straight up on the edges. Do the same thing with the front.

Slide it up over our E brake. The trunk release button kit takes the place of this emergency brake access cover. I slowly want to pry this off, and put it aside. We're going to fish the wires for our new kit through the opening into the cup holder area. Once they're fished through, put the plate up into place, and snap it into place. Looks just like it came from the factory.

Now you want to locate the harness that goes to the 12-volt power source in your console. See a black and a green wire. We want to get the blue supplied tap. You need to tap into the black wire for ground. The tap will strip the wire, but it's not a bad idea to strip a small section just to make it easier. Get the wire inside and snap it shut.

Now locate the black wire you just fished through from the button, and plug it into your wire tap. Now we're ready to run our red wire. The red wire's going to get fished up past the shifter, through here, across the glove box and over the kick panel area. The side panel is good to have off to put the wire through. Simply pull straight out.

Put your wire through the cup holder, past the shifter, out the side and up through the glove box area. Once you have the wire routed through and you install the panel back in place; it'll help hold the wire. Snaps in just like it came off.

There's a thick harness right behind the four bolts that hold the glove box on. Use the supplied wire tie and just tie the red wire to that. Then we just fished the wire down to the bottom of the kick panel. The easiest thing to do here is pull the doorsill plate off first. Then we're going to remove the kick panel. Simply pull straight up and it'll pop right off.

Now we tap the red wire into this harness here; we're looking for the white wire with the pink stripe. Carefully remove some of this electrical tape so we can see the wires. Once we locate it, we're going to strip a small section, install the supplied red tap, and we attach our red wire. Once we make that connection, before we put everything back together, we're going to test our trunk release to make sure it works.

It works exactly like it should. Now that we've tested it, we retape the wire harness; we put our interior back together. You want to make sure the red wire is running through the center of your console. You also want to zip that out to the main harness. Make sure it doesn't interrupt your brake or your shifter. Pull the brake up as hard as we can to put the center back on.

The trunk release kit from Starkey is a well-engineered product, looks like factory when it's installed and requires no permanent modification. Installation only takes about twenty minutes. You'll be back on the road in no time.
