The cargo light won't go off when I close the hatch door of my 1998 Forester. I've been having trouble with it for a couple of years, but it used to go out if I shut the hatch door very firmly. Now it won't go out no matter how many times I slam it. Of course, if the cargo light stays on, the dome light stays on, and in the morning the battery is dead. I've turned them both to off, but the dash warning light still shows.

I guess it's a problem with the switch contacts, but I'm not entirely sure where the switch(es) are. I see two pushable buttons, one on either side of the lower hatch frame, but pushing in one or both doesn't affect the light. Are these the switches? How do I troubleshoot before giving and and going to the shop?
