unid'd door popper short in system. how to bypass?

Here's the gruesome deal. I have a power trunk that's locked tight. Power to the trunk has a dead short. I can't find the problem. My fuel cell is in the trunk and I'm running on fumes and the gas gauge doesn't work either.

When I try to open the trunk using the intended electrical switch, it pops the fuse rat now !! Sounds like a gunshot. I need to get the car home !

How can I bypass the switch, fuse box etc and open the trunk ? The are two acessible wires running from the switch to the trunk solenoid. I know that it's not a good idea but it beats the heck out of no idea (hopefully). Help !!
