Retrofitting a boot button help

Hi all

I have a Grande punto 1.4 8v gp that standard has the dash boot button and the key fob boot button. I was in the scrap yard yesterday and picked up a punto evo boot release button that's in the badge I've noticed the wiring is very similar but no idea how to make it work has anyone ever done this before?

Re: Retrofitting a boot button help

I would imagine you would have to run the wires from the boot switch and splice them into the wires to the dash button. The dash button works by sending a signal to the body module which then works the boot release solenoid, the tailgate wiring on Evos' uses a different method.
Please note any offence caused is purely intentional
