Trunk popper question

Hello, I don't know if this was posted before (I already searched the forum, but found nothing).

Anyways, has anyone made their trunk open with their remote?
I know it's possible to replace the trunk latch with an Accord latch, but has anyone done this?

I'd like to know the wiring setup since I plan on doing this.

Thank you!

Hate to refer to another forum, but honda-tech would likely be a good place to search since they cover a multitude of hondas over there.

Re: Trunk popper question

Yeah, I know that a 99-02 Accord trunk latch can fit the 5th gen, I'm just trying to find out the wiring on the latch.

There's a plug from the latch that has I think 5 wires attached.

Where do the wires get attached to?

Re: Trunk popper question

I had a different trunk popper on mine - required 1 power wire and it attached to the factory latch. Never took photos of it, eventually removed it and gave it to a local luder - don't think he ever did anything with it.

Re: Trunk popper question

I have one that I haven't installed yet. I played around with it tracing out the wires with my multimeter and figures out which each one did. If I can remember to do it today I will go back to it and try to re learn the wires

Re: Trunk popper question

My trunk popper has coming off of it. This is a view looking into the female plug end on the popper.



#1 Solid brown wire
#2 Blue wire with brown dots
#3 Black wire with brown dots
#4 Blank
#5 Blue/ green stripe wire with brown dots
#6 Green wire with brown dots

Now once you come off of the trunk popper and hit your first plug, on the other side it changes color. I will do best I can to keep up, yours may be different colors.

#1 Orange with silver dots
#2 White/red stripe with brown dots
#3 Black with brown dots
#4 Blank
#5 Black with silver dots
#6 Blue with silver dots

Now.

#1 Shows continuity to ground when the actuator has been opened
#2 is your 12v positive for the actuator itself
#3 is your ground for the actuator itself (slightly confused seems redundant)
#4 Still blank
#5 makes continuity with #6 when the actuator has opened
#6 makes continuity with #5 when the actuator has opened.

I am assuming that #5+#6 make continuity when the jaw of the popper is open to illuminate the trunk light on your instrument panel, and maybe #1 sends a signal to the brain to say the trunks open now you can stop trying, I'm really not sure. But what it boils down to is you can wire up #2 to a 12v+ signal from a car alarm and it will open the latch

Re: Trunk popper question

Sorry for bringing up an old thread but this is the only one that is helpful to me as I am doing this mod as soon as my part comes in. Few questions I have on the wiring for bigblue7t6, as per your diagram which is a life saver, the #2 wire goes directly to the aux output on the alarm with a fuse to avoid any surges or fires, and #1 and #3 ground them together I assume. But the confusing one to me was #5 and #6 that affect the light as you said, on my 99 SH there is a connector to the old trunk hinge with two wires one black (ground) and the other looked white for a signal wire to let the light know when to turn on Im assuming those get wired to #5 and #6 am I way off on thisor what did you guys do to get everything running fine ?

Re: Trunk popper question

I guess Ill do an update I only grounded one wire from the harness and the other two I added adapters to hook up to the old trunk sensor, now my only issue is getting my alarm to send the signal :(

Re: Trunk popper question

It all depends what signal your wire from your alarm sends. Some send a 12v some send a ground. As far as what to do with the number 5 and 6 I would think you run one to the wire that came in the stock latch and ground the other one. So that when it is opened the wire that was there originally will make ground and turn the light on if that is what that wire is there for. I still haven't installed mine so I haven't seen this one wire and tested its function but if its a ground for the light I would wire it that way.

Re: Trunk popper question

Yea i had everything hooked up right, my alarm send out a negative signal so i used a relay and i got it working just had to move one of the relay wires, as far as the 2 cables that are stock for the light i used adapters i had laying around and reused the old hookup one was for the signal and the other im sure was ground

Re: Trunk popper question

Did this mod last year, here's a link to pics I took of the install and how/where I ran the wires:

https://plus.google.com/111386746813...ts/cDCPuJ9Ji8d

The vid at the end of the album shows how it works with my alarm. My pager will even show when the trunk is open.

You only need 3 wires, power, ground, and signal wire. My alarm trunk button sends out a (-ve) signal, so I needed a relay. You need to splice the power wire into one that is constant. The latch actually grounds itself when it's bolted your trunk. All that's left is locating the proper signal wire from your alarm and determining if it sends out a (+ve) or (-ve) signal. If (+) then you're good to go and can hook up up directly. If (-) then you need a relay. Pretty straightforward.

Re: Trunk popper question

Yea this was my first time ever wiring a a relay, so the wiring wasn't half bad, but the two original signal wires that were on my old trunk hinge, I hooked those up to the harness as well, I know one was a signal wire for the trunk light and the trunk icon in my cluster so it works like it was stock, and the other I assume is ground but not too sure, either way I have everything wired and works great.
