1. Check the fuse first. The trunk opens when you depress the switch just above the license plate with your fingers. It is either that switch or the relay for the switch. In my case it was the relay.

2. If the seat does not move with any of it`s switches, check fuse first. If OK then look under seat for the main power plug, check it`s connections and wires.

3. Check the fuse first. Then check relay.

4. in the instrument display at the bottom

You need to diagnose the system and climate control. Perhaps there is no freon.

Firstly, YES for S80 as a first car (same for me, a 2002)! Secondly, I always thought I had to pop the trunk with the fob button, but there's actually a little release button under the ledge above the license plate. Thirdly, yeah, the seat not moving is going to likely be an electrical/mechanical issue. Likely the same with the headrest. Fourthly, the clock is on the instrument panel with the temp display. The clock is a pain to set, so definitely consult with the manual for that.
As for the A/C, definitely make sure the A/C button is ON, haha! If it's still blowing warm air and never cooling, could be freon. If it's cooling weakly, then maybe an A/C recharge could help.
I probably repeated some of what's already been said...but oh well.
