Dizzy Wiring Trunk Latch Assembly from 98 SL2 Into 95 SL2 - Need Help

Hello,

I'm planning to add keyless entry with electronic trunk release on my 1995 SL2 so I went to the junkyard and pulled the trunk release assembly (with actuator) from a 1998 SL2. I'm not sure how to hook up the switch that controls the cargo light in the trunk.

The wires on the 1998 trunk assembly are as follows:
An electrical connector containing 3 wires
1 black(I presume is ground)
1 gray (that's the trunk release actuator)
1 red/black that leads to the switch controlling the cargo light

An electrical connector containing 1 wire
1 black wire that attaches to the metal frame of the trunk assembly.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The wires that come from the 1995 SL2 domelight are as follows:
An electrical connector containing 2 wires
1 orange
1 red/black

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in Advance!!

Its been a while since I installed an OEM latch in my 1995 SL2, but I believe the went from a negative switching system from the older cars to a positive switching system when they started using the electric latch. If I remember correctly.

Hmmm...would I then need to get a relay to switch polarity from negative to positive?
