Sounds like the cable has broken on your latch!! and your trunk!! I would try putting your key into the rear hole and gettint the locking device to move around to see if you can get it to shut!!

Gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


The actuator should be accessible from inside the trunk behind the trunk liner (just follow the wire). You should be able to remove the actuator and manually push the latch.

The gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


Sounds like the door release actuator is sticking. Try lubricating the latch when the door is open. In addition to using the button on the dash, you should be able to open the door pulling the wire adjacent to the fuel door inside the trunk.

My Honda Accord latch is broken. I can not open the gas tank door and the trunk won't close. It has to be a problem in the latch because it controls both gas tank door and trunk door


emergency release should be in the trunk as for the closing of the trunk, you need to disconnect the cable at the trunk latch until you can get it fixed

Trunk will not open when button on keyless remote is pressed


Then you probably have a sticking trunk latch, a weak/partially shorted trunk latch actuator, or high resistance in the trunk latch actuator circuit.

What is the lock for down at the drivers seat near the petrol cap release latch?


It locks the lever that opens the trunk of the car so you wont be able to use that lever to open the trunk from inside the vehicle. The master key should fit in it. You will still be able to open the truck with the key on the outside right at the trunk with the key even if you have the lever locked. It's a security thing. I hope this helps.

My trunk will not close


There is a possibility that the remote latch cable is stuck (lubrication is gone) . With a screwdriver, NOT the fingers, try to return manually the latch, to its open position (instead of the pull open position). If you push it too far, it will go into locked position, and when you pull down the trunk lid, it wont reach its normal closed position. In that case, pull the latch back open, with the remote lever. Should you manage to close the trunk properly, spray some WD40 or some lubricant on the latch assembly.

Trunk wont open. latch does not work from inside


Make sure the drivers door is open and push the button on the drivers door to open trunk. Keep the drivers door open while you open trunk. If you close the drivers door before opening it, it won't open. Well this is what happens to our car. Don't know if it's a fault or the design but this does work for us.
