SOURCE: my lever wont open my gas door....help i

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

SOURCE: my 92 eldo cadi trunk won't close it latches but

There is a electric motor on the lower part of the trunk that usually goes bad. Not on the trunk lid but the trunk part. You can remove the assembly and take it apart so you can turn the latch all the way down , Once youy have done this you can put it back in place. Make sure you unplug the motor so it won't go up again, You should be able to use the release button inside.

How can I close the trunk manually?


Sounds like the pull-down motor is not working. You may need to disconnect the latch and remove the motor or fix it to get the trunk lid completely closed.

My mother-in-law has a 1991 Lincoln Towncar and the trunk will not close. It has an electric motor that closes the trunk. We have replaced the 20 amp fuse but it will not close. Please help!


I have a 1991 also and when I first got the car,sometimes my trunk would not close.It has the electric closing feature also, Sometimes the latch stays down and doesnt come back up after you open the trunk.On my car, all I do is put my palm on the latch and push down on it and it comes back up every time. Its a quick and easy fix,,see if it works...good luck...

I have a 1996 lincoln towncar and the trunk isn't closing all the way. from what i have read it is probably the pull down motor???? could you tell me where that is located and what to do to test it to see...


The pull down motor is easy to change open your trunk and look where it latches thats your pull down motor it is probably 3 10 milimeter bolts you will probably have to take out the plastics that cover it up and push back or remove the trunk liner material by it. change your motor and you will have to adjust the motor by lightly snugging the bolts and closing the trunk till it is in the right position then tighten bolts and reinstale liner

Our 2003 Lincoln Towncar trunk has suddenly began not shutting properly. When it closes, it does not fully close to a seal. Upon our troubleshooting we feel the mechanism which brings the trunk to a full...


Once the lid is latched there is a motor that pulls the latch assembly down to finish closing the lid.

I would check the latch mechinism make sure it's not moving around on you like the bolts have loosened or that anything is bent. Also there is a switch in the mechanism that activates it to finish closing as well, open the trunk and close the jaw on the lock with a screwdriver or something similar, and see if you can hear the motor run, if not I would place blame on the switch or the motor itself. And as always I would check for loose / broke wires or a bad ground in the immeidate vicinity of the mechanism.

How do you reset the motor and anything else?I manually disengaged the top on a 1997 BMW 328I convertible


Happens alot. If you or someone pulls the interesting red strap under the rear seat, you have to do a reset. You have a small shot at just re-engaging the motors but will probably have to do a full reset. Take the back seat out and push lever back into the correct position. If you have a semi auto top (have to manually unlock top where it meets the windshield), lift the top back until you can pull up the back of the top to access tonnau cover. If it is a fully auto top, you have to pull out the cover at the very front of the headliner to access manual crank port. There should be a small allen wrench in the trunk tool box. You have to crank and crank and crank until the top is slightly open. You can then lift the back of the top to access tonneau cover. Both top types are the same from here on. Lift up on the tonneau cover and stow the top. Have a friend (or a heavy tool box) push down on the front part of the cover on the passenger side. You will hear a click. This will allow you to open the trunk. There are two motors located in the driver side rear quarter panel. You have to take out the covers hiding them. One motor is sort of in a horizontal placement under the pan where the top is stowed. Push up on this to re-engage. Other motor is in a vertivle orientation and at the driver side rear quater panel. You have to sort of grab the motor with both hands and pull it back into engangement with a gripping motion. Close the trunk. Push the switch to close the top (forward) and hold it down. Insert the key and turn it two clicks (accessory). After about 10 - 15 seconds you will hear the tonneau cover close and then open and the top closes. Let it cycle through and you are done. Hope that helps!

Trunk doesn't close all the way


Before going to a repair facility, check the fuse for 'convenience group' , the relay in the distribution box under the hood, the connector in the trunk, and the closing motor itself--sometimes they get loose on their brackets, and fall away from the metal closing loop on the trunk lid. Also check the metal closing loop on the trunk lid--sometimes they get loose and don't enter the closing motor mechanism at the right depth for the motor to capture it and secure it down.

My trunk on my eldorado 87 wont catch to close


sounds like the the trunk pull down assy is not raising. On the pull down is a black little piece of plastic ( part of the switch ), Flip up plastic to see if motor wll raise pull down, then the trunk can be closed normally. If it doesn't raise, further diagnosis will be required in the pull down motor area

Trunk latch pull down


You could try setting release to work manually. I have had the same problem. Take tne motor off set the catch clip at the right height. This should work with no cost.
