If you are going to run a wire from the battery area, I would use a relay triggered by the aux connections on the fuse box. The aux fuse is only a 5 amp. Using a relay, you connect the actual power line to the battery and use the aux power to trigger the relay. This way you are not limited to the 5 amp fuse. Just fuse the power line separately. You can also add a fuse block to the output of the relay. This will allow you to add more accessories later.
As for fishing the wire, I have a piece of 1/4 inch polyethylene tubing as the fish tape.

As mentioned it's only 5 amps. Be certain to not load it with more than that.

On my 2008 Airbag, there is like a plug & play on the left side pocket and it was very easy to install a cigarette lighter/ power supply.

That connector is fused at 5 amps by the aux fuse.

Sorry I missed that. I Have a 2008 GL 1800 Airbag.
One question: Did anyone had to work on the right side wires inside the trunk to fix the trunk lock? When I use the remote control the lights are flashing but the trunk doesn't unlock or lock. I did the key fob reset but nothing change.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Does the trunk lock manually or with the key ? Do you get the trunk open symbol in the dash when the trunk is closed and/or open ?
If you close the latches manually with the trunk open , use a tool to close the latches , does the remote unlatch / activate them ?
Sorry for so many questions just need more info .
