Just to give you an idea of just some of the issues caused by the trunk wires:
"Last week or so I posted regarding a fuse that kept blowing after the front bumper had been removed and replaced. The right front side marker and amber light next to the headlight were out as well. After a lot of head-scratching we found the problem. It was completely unrelated to the front bumper, just strange timing. There is a cluser of about 12 wires that comes from the trunk and goes into the trunk lid. It takes a sharp bend at a clip that holds it to the hinge. This was the problem. We opened up the sheath and found that two wires were broken apart and all the rest were showing copper and randomly shorting. Problem solved."
