I put stuff in my trunk and when I got home the trunk would not open with the keyfob or button inside the door. How can I get into the trunk to get my stuff and how do I fix it?


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.

Is there a way to open the fuel door from the trunk?


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.

95 Ford Taurus wagon 3.0. bumped in the rear and car died immediatly. Cant find the enertia switch. Found some kind of black box inside the drivers side rear quarter panel, but it has no reset swetch.



The emergency shut-off, fuel reset, or inertia switch - all referring to the same thing - is typically located in the back right corner of the vehicle.

Sedan: Open trunk lid, look to right side near fuel filler port, pull back the trunk liner to expose the switch.

Wagon: Open hatch, look to right side near fuel filler port, open access panel.

Recessed into the top of the switch is a red button. If tripped, then push down until it resets, or clicks back into the on position.

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.

Where is the gas cap release button inside my 1991 Jaguar?


Hi,

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 .

Fuel filler door my Jaguar X (2002) will not unlock


Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.

Fuel Filler Lid won't open


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.
