SOURCE: fuel filler release doesn't seem to work

i also have a 94 tercel with this problem. the spring is missing so i tied a long shoestring to the release lever next to the seat. i hold the string and it pulls up on lever while i use my key to open the door the rest of the way. the door pops open enough for the key to fit in the crack. hey it works for me lol have tried to find another spring at wrecking yard but someone always beats me to it

SOURCE: Fuel filler door opener

In my case, I found that it's because there's a clip spring on the hinge of the fuel door that went missing, that's why when I pulled the tab inside of the car, even though that works, the fuel door won't "pop" open, so I do have to jam a pen under the tab, and use my finger to pry it open. I suspect once I have the time to go the dealer and get the spring back on, everything should be fine.

there should be a manual release in the back of the Suv. If you check in your manual it should specify where it is. Good luck! :0)

My 2009 highlander interior light stays on

A lot of cars have a 3-position switch for the dome light - On all the time, on only when door is open, and off completely.

I would start by checking the switch position.

If it's on "door" and still will not turn off when the door is shut, I would go through each door, checking each one's open-door sensor (it's a switch usually somewhere on the threshold of the door).

You may have a bad switch.

If all else fails, you could just take the bulb out. :)

I have a 2009 Audi A4. All the doors are unlocked and the fuel door will not open. Is there a switch or another way to open the door? Could it be a fuse?

Pull the trunk wall lining back by the fuel filler. On my 99 A4 there is a red cable there - it's an emergency release that will pop the gas door open.
