How can I pop my trunk with electric lock?

I have the wire for the electric release.

My back seat is out but my trunk as my seats inside it so I can't really get to mechanisms that way.

ground is car itself, just put ground cable on any unpainted part
This...

Also, as stated, one is trunk solenoid and one is trunk lamp. Or should be, if they're factory wires and the car has those options. There's only one wire from fuse box to glovebox switch, then one wire on other side of switch to trunk solenoid. I BELIEVE it's the orange one, but can't recall specifically. Open glovebox, check wire colors to back of switch. Switch is a normally open switch, applies 12v to solenoid (grounded to trunk already).

In either case, each of the lamp or switch is grounded, so applying 12V should be fun no matter which wire you apply voltage to. :)
