it's a '98 you have mechanical levers for the trunk and frunk so fuse C3 doesn't apply. Try cycling the power locks a few times as that should release the plastic plate cover which engages to prevent them from opening when car is locked or driver door is closed. Is the remote release working for the rear trunk?

Good luck
