Just run a power wire to the switch. it grounds itself when attatched to the trunk.

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.
