Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.

How do i fix a 1997 nissan maxima taillights. i have no tell lights and not the fuse?

If you have no lights period I would check the wiring. If it's not the fuses (Under hood and inside). Just the brake lights check the brake switch under brake pedal.
Some Nissan's have a unit between the wiring that goes out. Trace the wires from the tail lights It would be in the trunk. Small black box.
Also check someone on there has the answer. ;Good luck.

Trunk release button not working

CHeck the fuses, also a poor connection in the trunk actuator may be the case, if there is a way to release the trunk from the inside, climb in the trunk, open it and check the actuator for a loose connection.
