Trunk&Gas Tank Buttons in driver door Don't work!

The buttons trunk and gas buttons don't do their jobs when pushed. They both make the sound like they're opening, but it's not. I can only open the trunk manually, with the key. I have to pry the gas tank cover to open.

    Problem is similar but it's the rear hatch (trunk) that has problem. When the button is pressed you must have someone at the hatch to force finger tips under hatch lip or it will close immediately when button is released! The gas door works fine.

Gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


The actuator should be accessible from inside the trunk behind the trunk liner (just follow the wire). You should be able to remove the actuator and manually push the latch.

Why won't my trunk or fuel door open on my 95 mercury cougar


Open the glove box; you'll see two buttons to the left, the lower one is for the gas tank. Get an owner's manual asap as it helps to have this. Best of luck. (here's my ride)

My Honda Accord latch is broken. I can not open the gas tank door and the trunk won't close. It has to be a problem in the latch because it controls both gas tank door and trunk door


emergency release should be in the trunk as for the closing of the trunk, you need to disconnect the cable at the trunk latch until you can get it fixed

Radio, trunk and gas door do not work


Check all fuses both inside the car and under the hood. Consult the owners manual for the location of the fuse boxes.

Otherwise, have a mechanic troubleshoot the cars electrical system.

Gas Tank door stuck


Try having a second person pull on the door as you press the button, and also listen by the door to see if you can hear the release latch working. Also, open your trunk, and on the same side as your gas tank will be a little pull handle as an emergency release for your fuel door. It may be behind the trunk liner, but usualy they are easily accessable. and if you have any other problems, refer to the owner's manual to locate the release.

Gas tank door


I had one gas door solenoid replaced under warranty. Since then I have just shot a bit of WD40 onto the post comng from the solenoid that holds the door closed. Do this at each oil change and the problems should stop.
