not sure on the fuse idea, you could just check all your fuses to see if there is one blown, you cant get into the trunk from inside the car because the seat release levers are in the trunk. If you pop your trunk you'll see two plastic tabs under the rear deck, pull them and you'll unclip the backseats and then you can just fold them down.
