Hello: Please check the valet switch in the glove box if it is on, turn it off and try the trunk and fuel door. Also there are 2 fuses for this system. The fuses are in the trunk compartment fuse block. They are labeled as follows:radio/phone fuse 10 amp and convenience fuse 20 amp. The round key should open the trunk, if not then it might be the wrong key or the trunk lock cylinder may have been replaced.

Gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


The actuator should be accessible from inside the trunk behind the trunk liner (just follow the wire). You should be able to remove the actuator and manually push the latch.

The gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


Sounds like the door release actuator is sticking. Try lubricating the latch when the door is open. In addition to using the button on the dash, you should be able to open the door pulling the wire adjacent to the fuel door inside the trunk.

My Honda Accord latch is broken. I can not open the gas tank door and the trunk won't close. It has to be a problem in the latch because it controls both gas tank door and trunk door


emergency release should be in the trunk as for the closing of the trunk, you need to disconnect the cable at the trunk latch until you can get it fixed

Well you have a few issues here. As for the drivers door not locking/unlocking the vehicle, it sounds like the linkage that comes off the back of the tumbler has broken off. You can tell if this has happened because of the locks and also you won't feel any resistance when you turn the key in the door. For the gas flap lock either there is a leak in the vacuum system for the locks or the gas flap lock is bad. To manually open the gas flap lock you need to go through the trunk and behind the trunk panel where the gas flap lock is there should be a lever to manually unlock it or you can remove the screws that hold in the lock.

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!
