If the release latch (under the door) is not frozen, then the cable may be binding, or broken. Try using an old credit card and work it to open the door. DO NOT USE A HEAT GUN OR FLAME !!!!!

SOURCE: Cant open ford Taurus hood 2003 pull cord doesn't work.

Sometimes it appears nothing happens but after pulling the hood get out and try reaching under the hood for the latch. However if nothing at all happened you need someone to press down lightly on the hood as you pull the cord.

Sounds like the keyless entry system is on the fritz. You will probably have to get a new brain for the keyless entry system.

SOURCE: 1995 taurus dome light and door lights won.t go

One of the door switches is bad. Try spraying wd4o into all the latches, sometimes this will free up the switches. It might take a couple of days. If it doesn't work you'll have to unhook one at a time to find out which one is bad.

Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


You can't unless it has a key hole. If you put jump leads on the battery or connect a battery charger it will open straight away.

Gas door won't release


if it uses a cable, there is probably a plastic part either in the front where the release lever is of by the gas door. I dont think the 91 taurus uses electronic openers. If you can illicit the assistance of another, find the cable on one side of the problem(gas door vs release lever) pull the cable if you can observe it move in the front or back the cable is good and it is probably a small part that has failed. You may be able to find the assembly at a used part outfit. Let me know

Gas relase wont open gas door


You mean you release the handle to open the gas door but the gas door is not open...?
A: If so. Ask a helper to pull the gas door release lever and hold it.
Now you need to manually open the door by hands. The spring load or clip that push the door open might be bend or broken. If so fix it or replace new one.

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! :(

How do you fill the gas tank?


IM SORRY BUT THAT IS FUNNY.

No seriously now.....if the release in the trunk wont work then the relaese may be stuck, frozen, or broken.

While you are pulling the one in the trunk, you or someone else use something like a small screwdriver to pop the lid open, then leave it open till you find out whats wrong with the release.

By the way, just so you know, those gas doors will not stop anyone from syphoning your gas. A screwdriver will pop that door open in 1/2 second, its more cosmetic and a slight deterent.
