Has anyone got a trunk release working or compass/temp working? I would be very interested if someone has. Not having the trunk release is especially annoying.

There are threads that discuss those questions -

The compass and temp is a complete PITA and isn't worth 99% of people's time. I want a nice alternative that I can stick on the windshield that doesn't look ghetto or out of place...

Trunk release - IIRC there was a thread telling what wire actually activates the trunk release, blue maybe?

Do some searchin' - info is available.

I did see about the blue wire but it was not clear where the wire was or how to find it. There also was no information about how to hook anything up. There was some talk about a diode being used but not enough info to piece everything together...

Nevermind I just found the post about the blue wire next to the fuse panel. I've been looking for the last couple of hours and must have overlooked it.
