Yes, the majority gas ovens with mains ignition can be bye passed you ether have a grill cover at the top of oven door or the bottom on the outside and somewhere between the grill slots there should be a small shaft with a slot in the end to enable you to turn it by screwdriver to put the gas through to the burner so your can manually when there is a power cut Ect.

Good luck

Need to replace the fuel pump in 2005 kia sedona

The fuel pump is in the gas tank and access in inside the van between the first row and second row of seats. The access is covered with a carpeted cover and then another metal cover which screws into the gas tank. Then there is a cover top of the assembly.

You must use a brush and clean off all the areas before removing the pump or the dirt will get into the gas tank. Disconnect three electrical connectors and two fuel lines. Mark the fuel lines so you are not confused to put in the new one. The electrical conectoers are individually different from each other.

2005's do not screw into the tank, they have clips. The clips have tabs imbedded into the top so you know where they are located to disengage them.

The tank lifts out and the float mechanism requires you to live it up and then tilt and shift it to get the float mechanism clear of the gas tank hole.

Left side power door does not work by power. does work manuel.

I had trouble with my left side power door recently - someone had 'popped' open the gas filler door - the open gas filler door disengages the electrics from the left side door (Honda safety obsession). Perhaps the sensor on your gas filler door is malfunctioning, or the door (cover, whatever you want to call it) is slightly open. That's where I would start to fix this problem...

The gas release does not work - is there a manual release?

No there is no manual release. Get a medium size flat screw driver and cover its flat end with electrical tape(so you don't scratch the paint on the car) and use it to pry open the gas fill door. A little careful prying is all it takes. You will see the latchas your prying. Hold the door with two finger on one hand and use the flat end to unhook the latch.

On my Audi 96 A6 my locks don't work and it locked my gas tank cover before it went out, is there a way to open in manually, otherwise I can't even drive it to the shop because I unknowingly ran it out of...

Is the remote control for the locks just not working? If the doors are unlocked, the trunk and cas tank cover should be unlocked as well. I have a slightly later model, but that's how it works with mine. Are you saying that you can manually open the doors with the key, but when you do, it doesn't unlock the gas door like normal? If so ,there's a manual pull tab in the trunk to open the gas tank flap on the same side of the trunk as the gas tank flap. After it's open, you can of course close the gas lid flap again, but it won't lock again if the auto-locking system isn't working. You'll have to get the dealer to replace the motor if it's gone out. This should get you in the gas tank for now though. Good luck!

Gas cover will not open.Is there a manual lever? It is on my 05 civic

Check inside the trunk. There's usually a Pull tab type cord that will spring the gas cover door open.

Gas cover stuck - manual backup?

my Jaguar X Type gas cap "sticks". I can open it by wedging a corner of a credit card in the left side or the cover, then go in the car and pull the lever. There are two flimsy metal bands that hold the cover in place and they sometimes bend and then the release doesn't work.  it should open easily with the credit card wedged in; then bend back the metal bands into shape.
