    Sorry I can't help at the moment with your trunk wire codes, but if you're working on a fiero kitcar you've GOTTA have a Haynes manual with the wiring diagrams in the back .

    I put the 87 fiero wiring diagrams in the files section.
    The motor only has one wire - grey black put power to it and ground the unit (hard to do on the kit :-)
    and it should work.

    The trunk release relay in the Inst panel I believe takes 3 wires - 1 is the above wire going out,
    then one blk-white going to trunk rel sol. The 3rd is the safety it goes to the brakes and ign/trans.

    I made a hole for a key just incase the battery died or the solonoid stopped working. Otherwise you'll have a hard time opening the trunk without having to damage something.
    I used a metal box mounted to the rear of the trunk metal frame that the solonoid mounts to. The Fiero solonoid was too big so I got one from a later model buick that is more compact.
    Even the longest journey begins with the first step.

    I used a cable release in my car.And if that ever failed,I have it where I can remove a tail light to release it by reaching in and fliping it by hand.
