Hello all, I am relatively new and haven’t had much problems with my 2012 Taurus SEL. I’m post in search of help with installing the trunk release button. I pulled the wiring and button from a 2010 Taurus limited and all the colors for wires and the plugs match up, but with the new wiring installed and the car unlocked or locked I can not get the button to work. I understand that my car did not come with it, but since I replaced the harness to the rear bumper and installed the button that it should work.
Any help or ways to test this would be greatly appreciated, thank you all in advance😊

Figured it out. If you don’t have the option with a trunk release button above the license plate, it is super easy to add it. I took the wiring harness, button, and keyless entry antenna from a 2010 Taurus limited and put it on my 2012 SEL. Looks factory. There’s a spot with lines on the inside of the rear bumper that you see once you take it off and you just cut that out and put the button there. Hope this helps someone out!
