Default GT convertible trunk release and keys

When I bought my 2005 GT Convertible it had only the one key and fob. The original owner told me that the trunk release on the key fob didn't work. No biggy, the key works fine but the trunk release in the glove box doesn't work either. Any ideas on how to fix these little bugs?

Also I only have 1 key, how do I get a second key and new key fobs?

I'm not sure why no one hasn't responded to your question but you can get another key fob from the dealer or on Ebay and get it programmed at the dealer. Also the key from the dealer as well. I need to get a second one as well. Good luck!

That's likely not his problem. The PT Vert's have a faily common problem with grounding in the trunk lid. Chances are the third brake light doesn't work for the same reason. If the fob works the door locks but not the trunk, he likely needs to just run a second ground wire to the trunk.

Did you run the ground from the harness(if so which wires) to the trunk lid, or from the cars body to the trunk lid?
