2000 Intrepid trunk light

The dashboard Trunk open idiot light on the dash and my trunk light have quit working.
I checked fuse 19 but its fine. I also have these red front door courtesy lens by the armrests that i'm not sure if they're lighted or just reflectors, and don't seem to light either. Could all these lights be related. Not sure where to start. I already replaced the trunk bulb...no help. Any ideas? thanks

The problem is that there's a wire in the trunk harness that breaks. This wire goes from the switch in the trunk lid to the body, so basically your car doesn't know when the trunk is open or not. My car's switch wire broke, I fixed it and it broke again.

Thanks I'll take a look at the wire. I guess since the remote button to open the trunk still works, the light must be on a different circuit. Is the switch that activates the light in the latching mechanism? I can't find anything around the trunk lid that would turn the light off or on. Thanks
