Try flipping the lever in the pull-down unit, get it to RAISE up high enough to catch the soft top latch. Hope this helps

Why doesn't pull down switch grab the trunk lid?


There's a motor that pulls the trunk lid down after it latches. The motor is under the latch on the body side. to test it, push a philips screwdriver shank into the latch like it was grabbing the trunk pull down motor to see if it triggers the motor to operate

Hood is not retracting fully into catches that hold it down,side flaps also stay up,will then not close electricaly from this position,only manualy


There is a micro switch in the latch that seems to fail too often. Does the over-head warning lamp continually flash ? If so, this is an electrical problem.

The side flaps should lower when the top is fully secured in either up or down positions.

The side flap motors seem to be about as durable as the rear side window lift assembly in this vehicle, which is not long. Side rear window lift assemblies are replaced a lot when the vehicle is around 5 to 6 years old..

Due to the complexity of the system and the need for a factory manual or experience to locate all the safety features and switches to this system, you need to consult your dealer.

I have a 1986 s10 blazer and the back hatch is stuck the key will go into the lock and turn but nothing happens is there anything i can do


There is a manual relese switch . You have to get into the cargo area and on the end gate under the window latch in the top center about an inch or two to the left of the window latch there is a hole in the metal that you can stick a stright head screw driver in and turn to the left and it will relese the rear window hatch. The problem is you can't see it, Its under the carpet on the gate so you can peel the carpat back or feel anound for it with your finger and punch a hole through the carpet but its there

How do i open the hood.


there should be a lever that is on the bottom edge of dash that is under the steering wheel along the trim. if the handle is broken you can use pliers to grab the cable and pull it to get the hood to realse. if you found all that and i seems to work ok then when pulling the release lever have a friend hit or shake the hood to get it to pop up a little so that you can open it all the way.

Can´t open the rear tail gate/door. Have tried the emergency opening option (holding down the 2 lock buttons in the car) but that didn´t work either. When pressing the rear door "handle" to open...


If you squeese the handle put your head near the badge you should hear one micro switch operating the window and a noise like well hard to explain but its a solenoid operating the rear latch after the window drops, you can get the inside panel off bit hard with door locked; at bottom of door panel is four philips screws take them out and then the panel pulls from the bottom up,cut round water shredder and you can operate latch manually to get it open then check to see if micro switch in handle is working its not a rear wiper fault or window fault as they work, the relay for the rear door latch and the rear window are behind the offside rear quarter panel 3 connectors for rear door electrics, the relays are up by the seat at top,its not normally a relay issue either rear door latch solenoid or micro switch in back handle but rule out the handle as window works.

Disconect battery and wait 5 min and try again it worked on mine.

Hope helps.

How do you open the hood to a 1986 Honda Civic with a broken hood latch cable?


Slide under car in front center and slightly on the driver's side.
Reach really high and find the broken cable and tug to the right (towards the driver side tire). You may want to use a flashlight and locking pliers.

I have a 2003 Ford Explorer Sport and I can't open the rear door. How do I acess the latch mechanism? The latch works when I apply pressure but nothing happens. The electric locks seem ok.


You will need to remove the panel from the inside of the rear door and then you will have access to the latch and assemblies in side the rear hatch.

Trunk jammed, driver side latch wont' work, keys wont work


You will have to get in the trunk through the back seats, and try and unbolt the latch catch off of the body. Then you will probably have to change both parts if you cannot get the catch out of the latch.

Volvo V40 Driver side electric window . Goes down but not up. Motor is working - sounds like something inside the motor is not catching


sounds like a missing tooth or stripped gear on the motor or moon gear on the regulator, the door will have to be taken apart and the regulator or motor replaced. If you can grab the top of the glass with your fingers GENTLY pull up while pressing the switch. it may catch another tooth and go up. (**Do not use pliers or any other tool to grab the glass**)
