are these the same two wires that run the trunk release? and if the unit was bad, will the trunk still open via the glovebox button?

unclip it.
the two wires on connector are labeled A and B. you need to connect them together.
I think these lines are missing from your TechInfo posting...

on the 1990, it DOES NOT USE THE ALDL CONNECTOR THING! i know this is the proper tway, it is how i programed mine. no, its not the wire for the trunk release. this is tan and black wires going to a black wiring harness not plugged into anything! it is found on the black metal wall to the left inside the glove box compartment.

Open you glove box, and pull the rubber tabs in each corner towards you, so they get on the other side of the stopper.

look on the left side, on the glove box support. there should be a wire (a pinkish color, and a black one) it has a connector on the end. you need to ground the A terminal of the wire.

its not missing from there.

Hmm? Yes, it'* missing the lines about how the connector is clipped on the side wall, how they're labeled A and B, and how you're supposed to connect them together. Right now it suddenly talks about grounding an "A terminal" without explaining what the A terminal is or where it came from. I think that'* why rjolly87 got lost and started blowing fuses on the trunk-release circuit by mistake.

Let'* try this procedure, with your missing lines added in:

1) Open your glove box, and pull the rubber tabs in each corner towards you, so they get on the other side of the stopper.

2) To the left of the glovebox, there is a little connector clipped on the side wall. Unclip it.

3) The two wires on the connector are labeled A and B. You need to connect them together.

4) The locks should now cycle, and the interior lights will come on. During this time, press the unlock button on your remote. If you have two remotes, you must do the second one during this time.

5) After you press the unlock button, the locks should now cycle again.

6) Disconnect the A and B wires from each other, and you're done.

How'* that? If it'* correct, can we update the TechInfo posting?

they reason it doesnt mention connecting A and B together is because you dont have to. B is a ground. you can just ground A to any ground. yes it was a brief discription, i did not know it was going into techinfo at the time! and on the connector A and B are labeled.

i found and tried the specified connector, with no success. it just does nothing. does the key have to be on? please advise. i connected the two, and even used an alternate ground. no go.

then there are other problems. if you would like to know where the keyless entry box is located it is above the glovebox, on the opposite side of the front wall. its about 6 inchs to the left of the "SSE BONNEVILLE" emblem on the dash.
