as i expected you have a manual cable release for the trunk. so the two are un releated. if you could take a picture of the trunk latch on the vehicle while the trunk it open it sounds like it may be stuck closed so it wont catch the latch on the trunk door.

as for the radio there are two different fuses that would control it. on is in the under hood fuse block it is fuse number 31 and it is a 20a fuse the other fuse is located in the fuse box inside the car. it is fuse number 6 and is a 10a fuse.

Hello Mike,
Like I said it's a 2008 Sentra----it's equipped with key less start----the battery is dead in key fob, so have to start with the key, and power door locks, and trunk release doesn't work either, nor does the radio-----Please reply--Thanks Frank

im sorry i never got an answer back on wether or not you have a manual or electric trunk release inside the vehicle. i did not know about the key fob situation as it was not mentioned in the beginning. that vehicle if i recall correctly the key fob goes into a slot in the dash and has a push start. can you confirm this or is it a standard turn key.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

To open the trunk if the key does not work, lower the back seat and pull the emergency release on the top of the trunk lid. Once you have the trunk open, check the valet switch to see if that was bumped by mistake which is not allowing the trunk release to operate. Here is where it is located.

Let me know if you have any more questions on this.

Thanks Jay!
