Front trunk light switch?

Anyone know where the front trunk light switch might be located? My front trunk light switch seems to only work intermittently and the bulb is for sure working.

I recently had the charger on the battery and had the front trunk lid up while it was charging. When I opened the trunk lid up the the light came on. After a while the light went out. I suspect there is some kind of a timer somewhere. I could not find a switch to turn it off. I have a 2001 Box base....

There is a DYI on Renntech for replacing the frunk micro switch. I think you have to be a registered member to read it, but here's the link:
