Passenger door shuts but console says open pushing outside button won't work

You need to pull the door apart and check the door ajar switch and the linkage rod from the door latch to the handle if it is how they are activated.

My gas cap and trunk wont open. I need gas. Te button on the console won't release the gas cap to open or the trunk. Audi TT 2002.

Take your key and go to the drivers door, make sure the door is unlocked by pulling on the handle, open and close the door. Insert the key and "lock" the door, double check that it is locked by pulling on the handle. Insert the key and "un-lock" the door, use the handle to open the door and now press the fuel door key and it should open, same for trunk release button.

Audi's are a strange breed, sometimes you just need to "re-set" some stuff. But in the future if you lock the car with the key, the fob will unlock the car but the three buttons in the console will not work, the fob will function correctly.

I hope this helps.

1998 corvette, center console power outlet has come apart, how do you get to the underside of the console?

Open the hatch/door on the center console, pry up that plastic piece just forward of the door with a small screwdriver working from the rear, remove those 2 nuts in the recess, unscrew the door if you wish for easier handling, at the rear of the console opening there are 2 small plastic covers, pop those out and remove the 2 nuts under them, lift the rear of the console and slide it back just enough to unplug the fuel door opening button( there isn't much slack in the wiring for this button so don't pull the console back too far ). I suspect you only needed step one, but this will get the console out for easier access to the power outlet.

When i open the door the light does not come on

Most likely the button on the door jam for the closed door maybe bad. Make sure the selection switch by the light is on DOOR. Then if the button is working, the open door symbol on your dash display should light up with the door open.

If it doesn't light up on the dash display with the door open, then the button on the door jam is bad.

How to set the automatic garage door opener

This is generally easy. Although you have not mentioned the brand, the system in the car and most cars is made by HOMELINK and they have a great website where you can go to find out how to program almost any car , etc with any garage door opener.

First , since the car is not new, hold button 1 and 3 on the car's overhead console continually for about 30 seconds. The lights will be on solid , then flash, then eventually go out. This erases any old codes. Then select your hanset position and a corresponding position on the cars pad. Lets say button 1. Hold your handheld remote to the overhead console and depress button 1 on both devices while watching the lights flash , fast then slow, then off.
Once done the car has received the signal and is ready to open the door.
On a door system with rolling codes there will also be a learn button ( Chamberlain, Liftmaster. Craftsman, etc.)on the drive unit in the garage,.This button is used to introduce a new device in "SAFE" mode.

Take a step stool , recah up and press the learn button . Then within 30 seconds push the console button in the car for 2 seconds and release. The openers lights will flash to acknowledge, then push the button in the car again for 2 seconds to test. Last step, retest your hand held to be sure it is still active as well. Post back to advise how you made out

yes your dimmer switch may have the option to turn on the interior lights so try that out. also check overhead console for the same option.

if none of that is the case find what door ajar switch does not look like the rest. and as you go door to door, when you open the door and locate the ajar switch, push them in maually which is a little black button mounted to the body. more then likely arount the striker plate for the door latch

the harness that is between the drivers door and the "a" pillar probably has some wires broken.
