2003 honda accord gas cap wont open

The cable must be broken from the gas cap release next to the drivers seat when i tried forcing it on a frozen morning. i need to open the gas cap manually so i can fill it with gas. i am going home from school in a month and can get it fixed for free at the dealership i bought it from but need to fill it just once. is there a way to open the gas cap manually until i return home?

    There are two screws you have to pull out, and then pull the carpet/liner back as much as you can, which is only about enough to get your hand back in there. Feel for the cable and find where it ends at the fuel door. You have to pull the cable out of the hole it goes into, you probably will have to rotate it... there are notches on the thing at the end of the cable that correspond to notches in the opening.

Ford taurus gas door wont open


If the release latch (under the door) is not frozen, then the cable may be binding, or broken. Try using an old credit card and work it to open the door. DO NOT USE A HEAT GUN OR FLAME !!!!!

The gas cap cover on my 1994 Honda Accord will not open when I pull the opener to the left of the driver's seat,/


most likely the cable that is linked to it has become either stretched or disconnected.
Go into the trunk if it is a 4dr model and if you can get your hand around to it.
Use needle nose pliers and try to pull the cable or the release.
If not and you are careful you can push away the latch from the outside with a screwdriver.

2003 Honda Accord has broken trunk release; is there a way to open it manually; there is no keyhole.


Firs look if the trunk release is whit cable or electrical,if its whit cable,go to the knob trunk release,take off the necesery part you need to take off to have space and to get to the cable,that way you can pull the cable.If its electrical,look for a blown fuse,if there is no blown fuse,open the back seats,that way you have access to the trunk and you can open it,check the selenoid .

Gas cap door will not open when release latch is


You might try having a friend bump the gas cover with the heel of their hand while you **** briskly on the release. Have done this a couple of times and once opened, you can use a little lubricant on the exposed parts. Sometimes that is enough.

Gas door wont open when pushing release lever, Trunk release works OK when pulling on same lever.How can I open Gas door without pushing on lever? What is the fix? Has enywone out there had this problem?


Try removing the plastic lever handle to see if it will let you push the lever further towards the floor resulting in more tension on the (hopefully not broken) cable.

Take a plastic knife like you would get at Wendy's (or anything you can think of that would work better) and wiggle it in the center of the right side of the fuel door. You're trying to depress a trigger and pop it open. Forcing can bend the inner latch but it can be bent back. After you get it open you'll need to do some adjusting or diagnose if the cable is broke. Even though it's the same lever, it's two cables.

Electrical wiring i think


First of all, when you replaced the timing belt did you replace the balance shaft belt also. Next have you checked the fluid level in the master cylinder? If the brake light doesn't come on when you apply the parking brake the switch might be bad. The bulb isn't bad because it comes on when you apply the brake. The turn signal bulb on the dash might be burned out. Is the hood release cable and the gas door cable handles right next to each other?

2002 Honda Civic Gas Hatch will not open


If te lever feels "empty", then yes the cable is broken. The cable should be visible from the underside of the car and you should be able to pull it with a proper pair of gloves. This is how it is done on older Accords but I have no knowledge on newer models.
