Where is trunk release fuse Infiniti g35?

The problem probably isn't your fuse. The wiring that goes into the trunk lid is most likely cut because of a bad design. There are 8 wires going into the trunk (4 positives + 4 black colored grounds). The trunk release, two back up lights and a believe the 4th set of wiring is for the spoiler brake light if equipped, but not sure. Access the trunk by using the emergency release lever mid way down the trunk lid. You can get to it via the back seat opening. Once the trunk is open. Look on the right side you will see a black wire loom going into the trunk lid. Cut it open with a razor blade. You will see broken wires in there. I had 4 broken wires (3 ground and one positive) Fix the wiring by adding on a little extra and soldiering like colored pieces together. The wiring in the trunk is basically just to short so I would consider fixing all 8 wires and stuffing the extra length into the body of the car and trunk lid.

This is a common problem on this Charger model. Most people are finding broken wires inside the rubber boot that routes wires from the trunk lid to the trunk. Pull the rubber grommet (passenger side of trunk) back and inspect the wires. You will find one or more broken. If you have any electrical skills, it is an easy fix. Good luck!

How do you install a subwoofer in a 1993 Chevy Lumina?

First you need to build or buy a box that fits the style of your trunk, then install your subwoofers into the box. Before you put the box in your trunk install your amp and wires. Feed your subwoofer wires through the side of the back seat, there should be a hole in the firewall that leads into the trunk, you will need someone to pull the wires through the fire wall into the trunk while your feeding the wires through the wall. Then connect your speaker wires to the inputs of your subwoofers then set your box in the trunk and slide it back as far as you can(all the way back if possible) and that should do it!!!

Why is the door warning light on in your Ford Focus?

Bad switch, somewhere, OR... a dorr is ajar. The Trunk Switch has a real problem with the Focus in that it is does not fully close due to dirt or corrosion. Suggest Synthetic grease with a brush all over the sliding parts. You will see 2 wires Black and Red leading to the Latch of the Trunk and these are the wires that the Alarm and Warning Light sense from. You might also have a problem with opening the trunk due to the same problem. Hope this helps.
