Trunk release button not responsive!

Hello All,
The button on the trunk will no longer open the trunk, but the remote button and the lever on the inside do open it. I have checked the glove compartment switch, and that is not the cause of the problem. I have read a lot of people mentioning wires falling apart that lead to the button, taillights and license plate light, and I really hope that isn't happening here :( has anyone had this problem and found a fix for it?
Thanks in advance.

By the glove box switch not being the problem, I mean that it was not switched off. If the switch is broken or something, I do not know. Is that something that happens often?
I guess this is more common that I thought! Im going to have to get my multimeter out and try some things...
So today I checked continuity of the trunk button on the trunk and the glove box, both checked out as FSM said they should. So now... not sure what to do. Once weather clears up (in about 6 months for us miserable Oregonians) I will have to tear the trunk apart and look for broken wires and such running through the hinge. I've had the car for a few years now with absolutely no problems, I guess it is just her time to start acting up!
Update! I tried the button again recently and it works! I believe that water somehow got into a connector or something and shorted it out, and only when it got drier did that water finally evaporate. Either that or HONDA MAGIC. Leaning more towards the magic.
