Question work in progress DIY for focus.

so I'll start off by saying that I'm selling my 1986 Buick Rivera to the junkyard for $240, but I was able to take a few parts out of it for a crazy idea I had. So far I have looked all over the internet and focus forums and have found no-one to do this yet, I will not tell you right off the bat what it is, so you will have to either guess, or wait till I post updates as I do it.

Here is the main part I needed for my idea.

Will update soon next step. And what this^ is, if nobody guess's it?

Looks like a trunk lock solenoid.

Keep guessing Bert, or just wait till the next step, and you will know right away.

Update: Well haven't had any work done yet, had to fix a thermostat on the 03 zx3's 2.3l duratec, not a fun job since it's under the intake manifold, but I found out you can just take the P/S pump off without unhooking any lines or pulling the pulley off.

But if the car's over heating problem is fixed, I'll start on this^. The fans might still be a problem, I found a blown diode, and replaced it, so it should be good now.

Re: work in progress DIY for focus.

Okay well I have got some time to start figuring out the little things, but first I got to make sure this still works, so I can get help I'll expose what this is.

In the 1986 Buick rivera I " Had", you glove box opened by pushing a button under the radio, well I plan to shave my glove box in the focus wagon, and install this and a button to be able to open my glove box just by button.

So with that said, this motor or trigger only has one wire coming out of it, and when placing the whole thing on metal as a ground( cause IDK if that's how the ground works), and took the one wire sticking out and taped it to a 12V source, and nothing, the trigger did not make the tab move?

I know it was working when I took it out, is there some special way to wire this so it works by a push of a button?

I'm not familiar with that solenoid but the way you the way you said you hooked it up should work. Make sure the metal you hooked it to is a good ground.

Re: work in progress DIY for focus.

I'm going to have to post pone this for a while, I do not think the trigger is good anymore, might have to rethink how to do it?
