So it seems the green button must be on 2002 or newer. As you don't have it either and y our is a year newer.
As to your question #2.
Don't know if I can answer that clearly. When I crawled in the trunk and pulled back the carpet I could see the trunk looked crooked. I pushed it back straight and when I did it kinda snapped in place. There is a black plastic fitting holding it in place. As soon as it clicked in place the trunk opened with the release button on the first try. Key fob works normally again as we'll.
So I don't know if it was the light switch or a combination of the switch and the carpet around the switch not seated firmly. All I know for sure is that my trunk is back opening perfectly Again :-)

2. you are saying that the light switch is what caused your trunk to not open?
