'91 LS400, trunk will not open. key will not turn, electric latch switch clicks but won't open. valet lock in open position. Tried 1) disconnect battery, reconnect battery, use switch, push down on...

If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck

Will not start i think it;the fuel filter wwould that be inthe gas tank?

Your fuel pump may be, not the filter though. Try checking on the passenger's side. You shoulod see gas lines going by. Just follow them back dow toward the trunk and you will find your filter. Do you know if your fuel pump is kicking on? You should hear a buzzing for a second or two after you turn the key. You need to check and see the fuel pressure to the engine. It may not be a problem with the car. It could be sensors to the ignition, cam sensor and crank, or spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor. You need to check for spark also.

Power lock, driver door, stuck in lock position. Can't unlock with power switch, slide lever, or key. Hear click but does nothing. Passenger side is fine.

Take a spray can of WD-40 or similar penetrating lubricant, and attach the little nozzle that comes with it. Stick that nozzle inside key hole as far as you can get it, and start spraying. Soak it good, and draw nozzle out slowly as you keep spraying, so that you get as much in all areas inside the tumbler as you can. Now open door and spray all around latch area, in behind, down the sides, and give it a good soaking as well. Try to also aim spray nozzle at back of key tumbler if you can from that hole where the latch is. Now let it sit for a 10 minutes or so to start working, then try moving lever, as well as try turning key in door as well, but don't force it to the point that you bend the key. Keep trying if it doesn't work at first, and give a little more spray each time, until it finally loosens up. Let me know if you get it moving.

1985 3.8 ford thunderbird have replaced plugs cap module on dist checked timing new fuel pump and still wont crank,any ideas?thanks

If you can't hear hum from fuel pump when key turned to on only, not start, check behind side cover panel in trunk on drivers side, for inertia switch. Has a button on top or side, push it in to reset. Pretty sure drivers side, but if not there, check other side (passenger) in trunk area, behind side panel.

check to make sure yu have 12v at the battery, once you do turn the ignition to start, if nothing, check the fuse and relays that control ignition, if all is good then the click sound is coming from the starter, have the solenoid replace.

How old is the battery? Clean the connections, charge the battery. Try starting it. Get the battery tested at Autozone or some place like that.

My hyundai car (1998- accent - coupe) battery is flat and its not getting opened...since it has central locking system..

Your key should work manually (without battery) on at least one door or the trunk/hatch. Otherwise the world would be filled with abandoned hyundais with flat batteries and no way to get in! Try the passenger side door; don't expect to hear the central locking relay, but if you turn the key far enough, that door should open.
