What year is your Box? If it's a 2001+, sounds like the frunk release actuator is getting wonky. For the switch, the sill plate will need to be removed.

Correct me if I'm wrong - but there are two screws on the inside side that need to come off and then it just pops off, or at least mine did. Nice and easy, start at one end and pop it up and just work your way down.

You should be pulling up on that release...if you pushed it through, you're doing it wrong.
