remote trunk opener

i bought a shaved handle kit for my doors and it came with 7 ch remotes, i would like to hook up the trunk to now. the trunk seliond thing is self grounding and just needs 12v+ to pop the lid open.

the reciever box thing has 2 positve ouputs that are used for the doors and channels 3-7 are negative outputs, how would i go about hooking it up? or can i?

Use one of the negative outputs to activate a relay, which in turn sends the necessary 12v+ to the trunk lid solenoid.

Ask for a "Bosch standard automotive relay". Here is what one looks like. Once you get that relay if you look at the pins on it you will notice they are each labeled with a number. To install this into your system these are the steps you will have to take.

What Bosch Relay looks like

Diagram of how to hook it up

Pins 30 and 86 need to have a fused 12v line (15 amps) hooked up to it from the car battery.

Pin 85 will be hooked up to the negative output on your kit.

Pin 87a will be hooked up to trunk release solenoid.

And "voila". All will be good. HTH
