Mine has a mind of it's own, sometimes it comes on, sometimes it doesn't.
Haven't had a chance to check it out.

Just tap the white peg that turns it off. Sometimes it gets stuck.

It's on the trunk. When you lift the trunk up, it's kinda in the middle of the trunk. It's a little white or tan peg about a inch long. Kind of hard to put it in writing.

on many gtos you have to manually stimulate the button by the boot to make it work.

I had a similar problem with mine, I pulled the light cover off and found that the bulb was not all the way in the sockets. if you have a similar problem, be carefull puting it back in its a little tight and you may ground it out and blow a fuse, but should be a quick fix.

Ok checked the peg and its screwed up you have to jiggle it and then the light comes on. I figured after a couple jiggles it should work but after closing the trunk same thing seems to be a faulty switch. This sucks if I have to take it in just for this I got a $30k car with 400 horses under the hood barely 200 miles but no trunk light.
