Trunk Light problem

I had the trunk on my 2006 R/T open and saw the light go out, so I went to Advance and got another bulb. Put it in and nothing...got another one...still nothing. Tested the bulb on a battery and it works. No blown fuses and all other lights interior or otherwise are not affected. All wires connected to trunk locking system look good and intact. Look through the Forums and didnt find anyone with this exact problem so what is the problem or how can I find the problem?? (By the way...anyone know the exact fuse connected to the trunk light?? Manual didnt list one specific but I did check all the small blade fuses)

Found something on the 300C Forum about wiring being cut. Today I pulled the wires off the trunk lock latch and out of the rubber boot and found the black/white and purple wires completely cut in half. Patched them back together and re-routed the wires back through and hooked them up, and all works fine now.

We've been experiencing more and more problems with the wires feeding the trunk through that rubber boot. The same wire harness can also cause the trunk release to stop working. Glad you got it worked out.
