2005 Ford 500 with info. Trunk is smashed and will not close. How do I get a mileage reading?

Asked by Aug 17, 2016 at 10:35 AM about the 2005 Ford Five Hundred SEL

Question type: General

I'm working on an 05 Ford 500 that has a speedo with info feature.  The dash
keeps telling me to shut trunk to reset, which I can't because it's smashed.  
How do I bypass this to get the miles to show?  Thanks in advance for any and
all help.

well you could take the wires for sensor and complete the circuit should solve the noise issue

Try pushing the reset button for the trip odometer. Don't hold the button. Just press and release it. That should acknowledge the trunk message and then you can view the odometer (miles) again. HTH. -Jim
