Which fuse were you checking? There are two fuses in the trunk release circuit - one underhood (ALDL) which feeds the trunk/fuel door release circuits via the valet switch and also the ALDL circuit; and one under the back seat (BODY fuse) for the trunk release.
Unfortunately, relay control signals for these releases run through the IPM (Instrument Panel Integration Module) which handles the release buttons on the dash, and the RIM (Rear Integration Module), which receives these signals from the IPM and handles them and the trunk release button on the keyless remote.
If the fuel door release is working at the dash and the trunk release is not, the ALDL fuse should be OK and the problem may still be with the BODY fuse, trunk release relay or wiring. If that isn't the problem, then I suggest you check for IPM and RIM DTC's (error codes).
replace black trunk weather stripping on rim of trunk. easy to do yourself.
As for the lights check your daytime running light relay/module -possible problem. You may want a tecnician to inspect this for you..
This light means that you have a tail light out. Though the module that control this light use to go bad fairly often. It is colored yellow, or gray, and I believe it is on the passenger side in the trunk under the trunk liner.
My dad did TONS of these modules in the 1980's working at Frank Yanco Toyota.
you need to have the exhaust system checked,either someone removed the heat shield that protects the trunk from the heat of the muffler,or they have the muffler too close to the trunk panel,but do it soon!

There should be a yellow lever inside the trunk near the back seat that you can pull. You will need to lower the back of the back seat, and stick your head in there and look up. Pull the yellow emergency lever and the trunk should open. It is mandatory to have one in case a child accidently locks themselves in the trunk. Once you get the trunk open, make sure the valet switch near the trunk latch didn't inadvertently get depressed. It should be either on the decklid on the latch or in the trunk itself below or next to the latch reciever. it should be a slide type switch that you can lift up or press down. Also make sure the trunk lock out button inside the glove box didn't accidently get pressed. Hope this helps
