There is corrosion at the positive battery cable and the terminal is probably  about to fall out of the battery. Clean battery terminals, replace bolts and spacer if applicable and recommend battery replacement

Can I reprogram my keyless remote from my 1995 eldorado to my 1996 cadillac eldorado


AS programs can be altered I would have it checked out at a dealer service centre as they will need the keys and the vehicle to see if it can be done

I believe the fuse went out to open my gas door and my trunk, I just cannot figure out what fuse to replace.


There is no fuse for that, open the trunk and pull on the cable going to the fuel tank lid.

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.

Trunk lock release and Gas filler cover release will not work at dash or fob.


Hello: Open the glove box on passenger side of dash and check the valet switch., if it is on that will keep the trunk and fuel door from working. Shut the valet switch off

99 vw beetle no power to door locks, trunk switch, or gas door not even with remote any suggestions?


the remote switch you are looking for is the fuel door switch that controls all these items trunk,unlock fuel tank door. this unit has to be replaced as a whole unit but check all your fuses first on driver side dash where door touches dash left side open door look for a triangle shape panel pop it open and check (ALL) fuses and especially #17 brown 7.5 amp fuse top right of fuse block.

Car starts, runs for 10 to 15 seconds and shuts of, dash read out says security problem , engine may not start ! I have a 1998 cadillac eldorado ! remote control only works on opening trunk trunk. also...


What you will need to do is get the theft deterrent codes read.This will help in finding the problem.You will probably have a B 2960.The problem is usually the ignition lock cylinder.This reads the key and if it sees the correct code it allows fuel to the motor.What usually happens is the wires break from the ignition cylinder being turned on and off all the time.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My lever wont open my gas door....help i need gas.actually even the trunk lever wouldnt open the trunk.....finally the trunk lever i was able to pull up and then i couldnt ...


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.
