SOURCE: my lever wont open my gas door....help i

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

The trunk release lever will not open the trunk. the trunk will open when the key is used but not by the release lever.


So, when somebody else pull the cable, do you see the latch move back and forward from the trunk? There is nothing complicated about a manual cable, it just pull the cable and there should be a reaction to it. If there is no action from the latch, no movement at all, then the cable is just broken. If there is a little movement, not enough to pull the latch to open the trunk, you still need to replace the cable.

How to adjust the trunk release lever?


There is no adjustment for the trunk release lever/cable. If it doesn't work there is a problem with the cable being broken/disconnected from the trunk lock assembly.

The trunk will not open when you pull the lever


this trunk is designed that there a position of the trunk lock that locks that inside handle,some car also use a lever at the latch to disable the inside trunk release,im 1 sure this car uses the trunk lock, take a look and see if you lock out the inside release. if the lock window where you put the key in is pointing at 3 or 9 oclock then its locked the inside release if its at 12 or 6 oclock then the inside release should work and then the cable may be bad, good luck.

Trunk won't close (cont'd)


Ok try this:Open the trunk.
Pry off the dayglo cover to the emergency release lever.
Unsnap the release lever and unhook the cable.
Make sure the cable nipple isn't catching on anything.
Try the trunk now.
If it's like my car, the emergency release cable is too short, not allowing the lock to cycle through.
This is just a test to find the problem. I wouldn't be running around without the handle in place, especially if you have kids. With mine, I ground the back of the nipple away but there's probably a better way.
Good luck, Let me know if it helps.
