Just check all the fuses and replace any that are blown. They can all be checked in a minute or two with a $5.00 test light. If all are found to be good then most likely a problem with the trunk release. Can you hear the trunk release click, like it is trying to release?

Re: which fuse is for trunk

I can tell you a wonderfull trick to getting the trunk open, I locked my keys in the trunk of my 89 sc lol, what you do is open the glove box, push in on the sides of the glove box door until it drops down out of the way, unplug the wire from the curtousy bulb/light, and unplug the wires from the back of the yellow trunk unlock switch, take a wire and stick it in the power connector from the curtousy light, and toch the other end of the wire to the connector that was on the back of the yellow switch tap on both sides of the connector, the trunk should click and unlatch, In summary, just get positve power to the outbound wire behind the yellow switch, the curtousy lamp socket provides perfect power, this is a 5-10 minute job, and if you want it would be hard to make a switch to do the same thing on a more permanent bases!
Hope this helps you out!
