Remote Trunk Release

Rating 8.5 out of 10. About 12 hours to install all components. Recommend! Customer Service, and shipping time were excellent, considering that this comes from the UK.

Trunk Release – This is the third part of the system. This installed without problems with the exception of a wire color. In the directions they talk about a long green wire that runs from the alarm to the trunk release. The wire turned out to be green with a red stripe. Took a guess and the examination of the connectors on the wire to determine that it was correct. This wire was long enough to go to the trunk. The blue wire, the trigger wire was about 12 inches to short and even with creative routing sticks out from the interior of the trunk around a taillight. This unit is powered from both a power tap on the Door Lock power feed, and a power feed directly off the battery. The battery connection is for the trunk lights.

Wolfmiata Keyless Entry and Trunk Release for a 2000 Miata

The product was extremely well designed, and as advertised, used factory mounting holes in the door panel, dash and trunk. Many of the parts were pre-assembled, and all the wires were color coded. The instructions were well written and the illustrations were very helpful. I was so pleased with the Keyless Entry System that I followed up with an order for the Remote Trunk Release.

Although I have done many home wiring products, this was my first experience working on an auto electrical system. It was definitely the most challenging upgrade I have undertaken since purhasing my Miata, and required working in some hard to reach locations under the dash. I probably logged in about 10 to 12 hours over the course of several days to complete the project. I'm sure that someone with more experience working on cars could do the installation much faster. Not only was the product well designed, but Wolf's service was also outstanding. I e-mailed them several times before and after purchasing the product, and they always responed promply.
