It sounds like the spring in the latch is broken or frozen try some WD-40 and spray it in the latch and the lock then if that does not fix it you may have to replace the latch

well you can always reset the cars computer by simply unhooking the battery which will make all the lights go away, but if there is a problem with the car, they will come back on within an hour or two from unhooking the battery. but you may get lucky and they may stay off.

98 chevy cavalier trunk won't stay shut


Could be. Or the electric part of the latch could be faulty.
Assuming you have an electric release you should be able to disconnect it and just use a key.

Gas door won't open


FIRST: try using the gas release lever from inside the car with the driver side door closed. My 2006 Jetta gas release lever would only work if the driver door were shut and I pulled the release from the inside car interior. Turns out it was a severed door wire (NOT THE RELEASE CABLE). Thus when the door was open, it stretched the damaged wire and so none of the door controls worked unless the door was closed. ie windows, trunk release, and gas release. It was a $600 repair at the dealership, parts and labor! :(

open the trunk and look around the inside where the fuel filler is-there should be a cable attached to the latch that acts as a manual over ride-if there is none, you will need to carefully pry at the latch to pop it open.

Im trying to open the trunk by remote, put dosent


test the electric pop trunk motor its on the back of the latch. use a test light and see if its getting power when you push the trunk release. also that trunk release is a button inside car not a cable if that correct then there a problem with the remote.

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold


you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

How do you open the fuel cap door on a volkswagen jetta without the power door button


Pushing the door with your hand isn't going to help, but after digging through a lot of info online, I succeeded in doing this. You have to peel back the lining of the trunk on the right side. Once you get a chance to look in there, there's a somewhat transparent white box inside the trunk near the gas cap. Attached to that is a small metal arm that connects to the inside of the gas cap release.

Tug on that piece of metal, and you'll pop open the gas cap.

A mechanic told me there really isn't a "tune up" per say for a Jetta TDI. Most importantly, the timing belt (w/water pump) replacement is the biggest concern. Change all the belts, check the glow plugs. If you drive on the highway a lot, the mass air flow sensor and its related hoses should be ok (carbon build up).
