Trunk light not working

I have a 99 intrepid and recently the trunk light stopped working. I've changed the light bulb and checked all the fuses but it still doesn't work. My last option is the trunk switch that turns on the light but I'm unable to locate it. Does anyone knows where the switch is located. Thanks.

It's probably a mercury switch located in the lamp unit itself. May have to replace the whole unit.

For vehicles equipped with electric deck lid release.
(1) Confirm motor lead wire is connected and 10
volts or more are available at solenoid.
(2) Provide proper ground through latch mounting
(3) Remove latch and examine plunger. Plunger
should spring back when pressed.
(4) Insure that solenoid plunger travel is adequate
approximately 16 mm (5/8 inch).

I had the same issue. It was the wiring harness that goes from the trunk release mechanizim to the harness at the rear left fender well. I guess there was a broken wire in it. I got a new harness off of E-bay for $20.00 and it repaired the issue. The same harness from MOPAR was about $100.00. Good luck..........................Pete
