Fuse #34, #44 and the white membrane! xD
It's been three years since we don't use the button anymore, and just recently I found out about this forum and following the advice of gonzo 1954 I removed the button and repositioned the white rubber membrane, voila! :D
It works now!
Still, I had problems because it wasn't consistent and went on to check the fuses, to be more specific fuse #34 'cause I read it on another thread.
This didn't work but it lead to finding out that for me the fuse #44 was the culprit.
Somehow it gets loose and whenever I click it in, the button gets going again.
Big thanks to everyone that joined in on solving this one for me! ;)

Im having a similiar problem, the button on my dash doesnt work and also the boot release on the key fob doesnt work (but locking and unlocking buttons works). However I can open it manually with my key. When I press the dash release I can hear the button make a click, however the boot doesnt release.
Also when all doors are closed the door open warning light stays on in the dash. Could this be related to the boot issue? The doors turn on and off the interior light when opened and closed, so im assuming its boot related too.

It works ok with the key in the boot lock and also by pressing the key fob button.... from following your advise and shaving a few mm off the three vanes on the rear of the button the boot realese button now works!
It must be that the white rubber boot behind the button wears a bit? and so pushing the button doesn't quite make it contact the switch. So shaving a few mm off these vanes allows the button to be pushed in slightly further and makes the switch work again.

I have the same issue. I can open my hatch with the Key Fob and the Car Key, but the Dash Release Switch isn't working.
how much was the part replacement? was it cheap.

Got a sedan myself, disassembled & cleaned the switch a few times B4 I broke down & got a new one. Once it got to the point that a cleaning only lasted a month or so I got tired of messin' with it (grin)
And for the sedan poster, on mine i have to pull the "Emergency release" in the trunk B4 closing it to make sure it's fully open B4 closing the trunk. Once I do that i don't have to deal with the "door ajar" light or the release not working right 'cause it wasn't closed completely.

|subwoofer04||I've got a similar problem, all of a sudden, my trunk release button stopped working and the button on the door itself. BTW, it's a wagon. Is there an easy fix here or is this a mech problem?|

|WhiteThunder||I have a strange problem with that also. In my case pressing the button on the dash 3 times Ina row one push isn't good enough for white thunder. Also the trunk doesn't latch unless it open and close it twice and hit the trunk switch the second time.|

|gonzo1954||using small flat blade screw driver ,gently remove front of button from dash.you will see small white switch left in dash,press this if boot opens it is the part you have already removed from dash.if you look at the black peice you have removed you will notice 3 plastic ribs running downback of switch.these need to be shortened in length they are stopping front of switch connecting the micro switch when pushed.Use sharp blade and shorten all 3 by about 6mm and reassemble switch.BINGO IT WORKS|

Mine wouldn't work unless-
1) key was OFF
2) Driver's door was open
3) car was not moving.
