SOURCE: Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic

The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.

Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.

SOURCE: fuel door on my 1993 toyota camry won't open when I pull the leve

Get someone to help you. Have them pull up on the handle, whilst you pry open the door with a credit card, or something thin and plastic. Pull open the fuel door. Look to see if there is a bent piece of metal above the hinge. This is the "spring" that pops the fuel door open. If it is not there, it has broken, and needs to be replaced. About 3 dollars at a Toyota Dealer.

SOURCE: 2004 Toyota tundra four wheel drive won't engage

Does the 4wd icon on the dash blink when you try? The most common problem I have seen is the 4wd actuator sticking. Its mounted towards the rear of the transfer case on the drivers side(US). It has about a 3inch electrical plug on it. Locate it and with the truck running have someone push the 4wd button while you lightly tap on the actuator motor. They can sometimes stick from lack of use. If it doesn't free up it may need to be replaced which is rather involved. The transfer case would need to be removed and opened up to replace.
Good luck.

2004 Toyota tundra interior lights won't come on when I open the door. If I just push them on and off they work fine what would be the problem


The door ajar switch is likely defective, it senses the door is open ad turns on the coutesy lights as well as alerts you to the fact the door is open and the key is on (door "ajar").

Either the button for the light is turned to the off position, instead of on with door open position, or the light bulb is shot.

Fuel door release brokern


If it is a lever it should be a cable. A button would be electric.
There may be an emergency release inside the trunk near the door.
It depends on what is damaged how it needs to be repaired.

The gas tank door won't open with the lever, only if I put something under the lever after pulling it up I can pry open the door


More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.

Cant find button for gas cap


You probably have a bad fuel door spring.

HAve someone help you; have them pull up on the fuel door release lever. Using a credit card, or something similar, insert the card at the side of the door that is closest to the rear of the car. Pull the door open with the card. When the door is open, look to see on the hinge side for a metal tab. This is the fuel door spring. If it is there, open the tab slightly. If it is not there, you can get one from a Toyota dealer for a couple of dollars; the old one snaps out, and the new one snaps in. Easy to change.

Fuel Door will not open


the cable from the lever to the door has broken. If you look inside the trunk, (sometimes you will have to pull the carpeted side down) right behind the gas door, you will find a short emergency release cable with a loop on the end - grab and pull the loop and your gas door should pop open.

Fuel filler release doesn't seem to work


Try this: Have someone pull the release cable. Using a small tool (credit card, plastic knife, anything); see if you can manually "pry" (for lack of a better term) the filler door open. If it DOES open, the fuel door "pop" spring is either broken or compressed to the point that it will not "pop" the door open. The spring is a flat piece of metal, bent into sorta of a "U" shape, and is located at the hinge side. Try this, and get back to me if you need more assistance. Hope this helps.
