I'm tired of turning off the engine to pop the trunk and want to do the actuator mod. Does anybody have any information or wiring diagrams on where they wired this mod to for power.

I understand the concept but want more clarification on exact wiring with momentary switch. Any details/pictures would be extremely helpful.

Hot ONLY when the key is on. Can show me where and how to hook the actuator up? Is it as simple as a fuse tap? If so which fuse....... so on. Pictures would be great showing where the positive and negative.

It's really a simple concept. Ground. Tap positive into switched power. Hook up actuator to trunk release.

I just want to see the hook-up to know which wires/fuse to tap and how to tap properly.

I've seen that they have it . However, I have the $6 actuator, $3 switch and I already have the $1 spring. All I need now is to make sure that it's wired safely. I've seen a space for switched accessories in the fuse box.

Thanks Bob. The fuse tap method seems less invasive. I'm not real comfortable cutting wires or tapping into lines. Somebody must have a picture of their fuse box with the wire attached. I'm almost 100% sure that this is how I will connect it, but want confirmation it is correct.

I think the approach I am going to take is to fuse tap the empty fuse location for switched accessories un the trunk. My understanding is that it will also "activate" power to the 12v plug (wherever that is) when I add the fuse to the location. I haven't attempted to find the plug yet.
