    Can i just get from back light(brake or others)?
    or

    or just make another connection from ciga jack?

    Run an 8 or 10 gauge wire from the battery to the trunk. Most cars you can find a way to run it through the firewall. You may have to cut an X in a rubber seal and silicone over it once wire is run. I would also put a fuse inline about a foot from the battery connection. Not a good idea to run from break light......

    Same thing the guy above me said.
    How I got power to the trunk was by running 6 gauge wire under the carpet. Then, in the middle of my back seat is a opening that goes to the trunk, so I just kinda snaked around into their.

    Just keep the power wire away from other wires. Especially the audio wires comming out of the computer and amps and such...
