Well, so much for common sense. My next service manual is for a 2000 model. This circuit shows fuse 19 feeding the switch on the pink wire, then a black / white wire goes to the Body Computer, connector 1, pin 1. The Body Computer sends a voltage out on connector 7, pin 2, a different black / white wire to the solenoid. I'm not sure what problem they found a solution to by adding the computer, but check the switch again by jumping the two wires. Check for voltage at the solenoid. If it shows up there, be sure the ground is good, then replace the solenoid.
As a hint, the decklid ajar switch shares the same ground. If the dash light turns on when the trunk lid is open, you know the ground is okay.
