My dashboard hatch release button stopped working about 6 months ago.

The hatch release on the fob still works fine. I just have to turn the car off and pull the key out of the ignition to pop the hatch now when inside the car(pretty lame).

Nothing traumatic happened to the car, it just stopped working.

I have a feeling its just the connection to the button at the dashboard, but before I started tearing up the interior of my car, haha I was hoping for a second opinion.

Anybody else run into this?

I don't know if it's the same button as my hatch. I had to take mine apart and put something between the button and the little rubber piece inside. For whatever reason the contact gets messed up and doesn't touch anymore. I did mine over two years ago and haven't had trouble since.
