Typically trunk latches have an electrical release actuator. The closing latch is spring operated when the trunk is closed.
The release actuator is 12 volts DC.
The ampere draw is only a couple amps.
It only requires a momentary pulse to release the latch.
No relay required just momentary button.
Ground the body of the actuator and apply 12 volts to the wire.
