Thanks go out to you and robert.
I finally got into the trunk this afternoon, and found that all the
wires were missing insulation and 4 were broken completely off.
I now know why the trunk interior light was not working as well,(The 2
proverbial birds).
Soldered and taped, replaced the fuse, and all is good once again.
Thanks again
