Trunk release button above license plate not working

I have searched countless threads and have not found a solve for this outside of one potential cause which I do not believe is the case in my situation...

I am able to open my trunk lid with the button on the remote and with the button inside the car. However the button above the license plate does not work at all... no response at all.

One of the causes that was discussed in many threads here is the wires getting frayed from the trunk to the inside of the car however in my case the wires are tightly taped together and concealed within the black flexible rubber so I do not believe that I would have a frayed or cut wire in there.

What else could it be?
