The latch is not articulating right perhaps because it is not adjusted correctly. You might need to loosen the bolts and readjust, or take it to a body shop that can make it work for you.

The brake light going out is an electrical problem. Probably just a coincidence that this happened, short of getting into a rear end collision.

Replace the light bulb in the lense for that one to fix the light up problem.

Good luck to you.

Where is the fuel shut off inercia switch?


Two places I find them on cars (I work on a lot of different models and makes) is both on the passenger side. One is at the the right side of your foot behind the kick panel, there will be a hole there to put your finger in t push down on the reset. The other one is in the trunk. It will be either under the rear dash or behind the side carpet that lines the trunk towards the back, by the tail lights.

Trunk on my malibu keeps clicking to open with no one around or touching anything. what to do


Step 1:

The year of your Malibu should not matter.

Step 2:

Locate the electrical fuse panel inside the passenger compartment. It should be located behind a plastic panel (kick panel) to the left of the drivers feet or to the right of the front passengers feet.

Step 3:

If you have your cars factory Owners Manual, it can assist you in locating the fuse panel. Once you have located the fuse panel and have removed the plastic cover, read the sticker that is attached to the back of the fuse panel cover. It should show you which fuse is associated with the trunk lock or trunk latch.

Step 4:

If this fuse is found, remove the fuse and determine if the trunk latch has stopped clicking. If you can not find the responsible fuse, you can do the following-

Step 5:

You can pull one fuse at a time until you find the one for the trunk latch (remember, a fuse often is responsible for more than one circuit), or

Step 6:

You can locate the back side of the in-cabin trunk switch, disconnect the connector that attaches to the switch and see if that stops the involuntary activation of the switch. If it does stop, you can safely conclude that the switch that you push to open the trunk will need to be replaced.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and the trunk latch won't click into place and close fully, therefore the trunk won't close fully.


yes that could be the problem. try this putt your key in to the lock and turn it to unlock it , check to see if latch is open ,while still holding the key in the unlock position close the trunk and relock it with the key while pushing down on the hood at the same time. replace the lock when you can .there is no quick fix for this unless u use a bungee cord for it .

Trunk will not open fuel door will not open all fuses ok


You have listed the vehicle is a 1987 Jaguar XJ6. The trunk is not electronic and only unlocks with the key as well as both the gas doors. Any issues here then it is your key or the actual trunk latch. If you do have a 1988 model year then the trunk lock has 3 positions. locked all the time, unlocked all the time or the vertical position locks and unlocks with the vehicles drivers door lock. If the trunk button (paddle) is loose and moves but nothing happens then the inside rod has come loose and you will have to manually operate the latch by removing the license plate and taking a long screw driver through the lower plastic bungs. The fuel flap is a separate unite and does have a manual release but you need to open the trunk to get to it. If the fuel flap stays locked all the time then the actually filler neck module will need replacing.If you have a 1997 which has the electronic release button to open the trunk (95-2003) Then you will need to firstly lock all door and unlock the drivers door 2 times. Check the fuel flap is now released, if not then the fuel flap actuator located on the filler neck inside the trunk is bad. If the trunk does not open with the remote, inside car switch and trunk mounted switch then the passenger side trunk harness is broken. Open the trunk with the key and on the right(passenger) hinge there is a grey plastic cover, remove that cover and carefully peel back the wiring harness cover and you will find 1 or more broken wires. Once the wires are repaired then I recommend you zip tie them in place and retest the trunk release button.If this does not answer any of your questions please feel free to email mejpseuro@gmail.com

Chrysler sebring trunk lock wont latch and stay shut and locked


On the Sebring, there is a small switch on the trunk where it latches. Right in the middle, there is a small button you can push, which will allow the trunk door to shut. It just needs reset. Right where it goes down to lock at.

1993 mercedes benz 400 sel. I have no brake lights they went out about 3 days ago i check the fuses n bulb but they still dont work and my doors will no longer look with remote i check the batteries in the...


You may have two separate issues here. First as for the brake lights not working I'm guessing they all went out at once. If so there is stop lamp switch located on the arm of the brake pedal. If this switch stopped working then you will not have any brake lights. The panel underneath the dash has to be pulled out in order to see the switch. As for the locks not working the pnuematic pump which supplies vacuum for the central locking to work may have either quit working or shut down due to a vacuum leak in one of the vacuum elements. To check this go to the fuse panel in the trunk and look for the fuse for central locking and remove it for a few seconds and re insert. This will reset the pump and allow it to work again. Try the locks a few times to see if they are working. If they don't work right away then you may have a bad vacuum pump for the central locking. The central locking pump is located under the rear seat cushion on the passenger side. Hope this info helps you out if not let me know and I will try to do what I can to assist you.
