Try pressing the fob trunk button while pushing down on the trunk lid as sometimes the latch mechanism gets dry and sticks. If you do get it opened spray some silicone spray onto the latch and wipe off excess with a towel. It is possible that something got caught or wedged into the latching unit. As Malissa said try unhooking and reconnecting the battery to see if the BCM resets and lets the key fob work.
Yes, look behind the trunk liner on the passenger side approximately where the filler cover would be and you will find a wire rope with a plastic handle on the end. Pull it about an inch and your fuel filler door will pop open.
See if the trunk has springs or metal rods that can be adjusted, like a garage door spring. Or, if it has gas struts, see if there is a stronger strut for a Sebring with a spoiler on the deck lid. It will be stronger to lift the heavier deck lid.
Open your trunk lid and on the left hand side (the side of the fuel filler cap) there should be a label that says manual fuel door open. The switch is white and close to the top right by the fuel filler cap on the inside of the trunk. You may have to pull back the carpeting a little to find it as it might be tucked behind. Give it a pull and the fuel door should open. Best of luck .
it sounds like you have a broken cable that connects from the inside of the car to the release of the gas tank. now the other release ( you said the book says is in the trunk on the lefthand-side ) it is probably under the lining of the trunk because most of them are not in plan sight for you to see.
Hello, I'm not sure if you are talking about the lid that you have to open to get to the fuel filler cap or the cap itself. If it's the fuel filler cap that you are talking about, you will need to take a pair of channel locks or equivalent and grab the two metal pieces that are about 3/8" wide, hold the cap with one hand and turn the pliers with the other until it snaps back on top of the ex centric. If it's the actual lid that won't open, it is a vacuum problem. You can try to leave the car running, then work your locking system back and forth with the key in the drivers door. That should get the trunk unlocked. If you can get the trunk open, look to the upper right in your trunk and should see a round pull knob, pull it and your lid will open. I hope this helps.
