Unhappy Trunk Door unlock button not working

Hello guys,

I have a 1999 323i and I don't know why I don't have a internal switch to open the trunk, there is a button under the trunk door handle that you press and it opens the trunk and it is not working. I already tried to fix it but I opened everything but nothing looks wrong. The control key is the only way i can open it but now I lost it. Does anybody knows how to fix the button in the trunk? any clue?

thankx

If the glove box is locked, it will not work. This is a safety that was added for Valet service to prevent them from plundering through your stuff.

maybe your button is broken....once you get it open rip things apart so you can look at the hookups.
