On my 04, there is no sensor for the trunk lid...which kind of annoys me, because it's yet another example of the virus-like cost cutting Ford does relentlessly...adding some new features (message center) at the expense of a dozen "little things" people come to expect.
My 98 could tell me when the trunk was open, and judging from the posts here, the trunk lid was also wired in to the alarm system...as it should be.
I don't know why forcing the trunk open wouldn't set the alarm off, considering I know some people here have had their trunks broken in to. Why does Ford insist on doing things like this?
Just thought I'd throw that out there...not all models have a trunk sensor.
And as far as I know, the system has never had a shock sensor, for the person who was trying to set it off by rocking the car. You can wail on the car all you want and as long as you don't open a door (or "force" the lock cylinder) it won't go off.
