Trunk Lid Plug

Post by ckrock946 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 2:54 pm

So im currently working on a custom led third brake light and i realized that there is a plug coming out of the bunch of wires.

just curious what purpose does the grey plug serve?

Most likely, it is for the power trunk latch option.

Not having a full pic of the latch only led to guessing.

It's tough to see the exact wire colors in that pic.
One appears to be black, the other?

Possibly if you posted those, we could possibly match them to a wire diagram. Color and tracer color.

MY guess would be the sensor for the alarm? however i think there is another wire that can possibly go there too

So I took some more pics... There not the best quality since I used my 'dumb' phone but they should be good enough. The one shows where exactly it is... One wire is black and the other is purple/yellow

Meh, I'd have to remove the trunklid carpet and I'm too lazy. I still want the factory alarm (EVC II- wasn't it called that? I'm at work so I don't have any brochures to check). :banghead:
