I lost the button to open my gas door is there another way to open it... My button is in between the two front seats not on the door

My button isn't on my door it's in between the two front seats most videos talk about it being on the door.

The engine also overheats when you run a few miles, and indicates 'check coolant'. The tank dries up without any leaks

None of my interior lights work nor does my window switches. I have found fuse diagram and checked fuses are all good. What can cause these problems and how can I fix them???
