Default Trunk fix

Ok, I'm on vacation and trying to get some things done before its back to the grind. My baby was violated last year and she needs a new trunk latch. I didn't originally have one with an actuator but got one with it from the boneyard. I've done the searching but can figure out if it is possible to wire in the release button. Have a button with with lt. green wire w/ white stripe and a solid black wire. The the latch with acuator has a solid black wire and a black wire w/ white stripe. If it is possible can the wires be powered and connected directly or am I going to need something else?

The quickest way for you to get the info you need would be to read this thread:
Add Trunk Release

There are a number more threads on this subject too, so if you need additional info, first try a SEARCH on "trunk release". Then as you need more info, just ask.

Yeah I looked at that post and the other 200 that came up and found some info, but nothing tells me which wires are hot and which to connect between the button and latch.

It doesn't show it, but the RFA module should have a ground ckt associated with it. The RFA is there for actuation of trunk release from the key fob, correct? Maybe the grounding ckt. shows up on another schematic. The RFA is shown in phantom. (broken lines)
