As in, you want to use the power cable that runs from the battery's positive pole to power a light bulb?
I don't see why not. People use it to power cooling fans sometimes, so a bulb should be an issue.

Yes you can do it, no issues there, I would recommend you fuse the light at the amp to prevent any shorts/damage wire, causing damage to your car.
You will also need a switch to turn on/off the light when the trnk is open

Ditto that on fusing it as close to the power wire as possible. :idea:

What you can do is trace back the factory trunk switch and re-use that. It's a single contact normally-closed push switch, located near the striker plate for the trunk lock, that provides the connection to body ground when the trunk lid is opened.
