Does not have a trunk lock
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 month ago.

yes on 08 fx 35 ,does not have one i just doubled checked ,sorry

sometimes those lock cylinder get frozen ,we usually spray a parts cleaner inside the lock cylinder where the metal key goes and soake for few minutes and keep trying until it unlocks .

if that does not work and the metal key not opening , there is no other way then calling a Lock smith at this time .
