Sounds like a wiring issue related to something in the door where your getting a short. Check your battery. Is it 12.4V or higher?

Fuel Pump reset in the trunk sounds like the problem to me. This is located usually under a flap in the trunk on the left side. If that doesn't help I don't know what else to suggest.
