SOURCE: 1985 corvette horns...

Have you tried replacing the horns themselves? Have you checked all the fuses relating to the horns? Relay? Maybe its the horn button itself? Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Rear Hatch Won't Release

The hatch is probably "jammed".
Has the hatch opened by itself while you are driving? That is a symptom....
Using a second person/helper, press the "open" button while you pull hard to pop it open.
If it opens, then the lock mechanism needs adjusting and tightening. There are two bolts that hold the catch hook. Once you adjust the catch, be sure to "open" the latch before you close the hatch. (rhyme not on purpose)...

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: cannot open rear hatch. have all internal panels

The lock is most likely the problem,the latch itself has a lever on it to neutalise the latch.When it is locked,it actually disengages the latch.Move that latch,to engage the latch operation.Once you have moved that lever,it will actually be unlocked,and the latch should be enable.I hope this was somewhat helpful to you,if it was please let us know,thank you.

Removal of rear door lift hatch interior plastic panel on a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan to push out dent in metal door from the inside.

The rear door panel is secured to the door using screws and clips. The screws will be in the handle used to close the door and there may be plastic plugs in the handle hiding the screws. Once these screws are removed, the handle will come off. Look for any more screws along the panel. If there are more, they will be visible. Once the screws are removed, pull on the panel to release the clips that secure it to the door. These clips will require some force to release them and will make a snap/pop sound once released. You may have to put a screwdriver/wedge between the panel and door to start the process of releasing the clips

    How to replace headlight switch 1985 corvette

    The first step is to remove the knob from the metal stem of the switch. Look on the side of the knob and you will find an opening. With a small screwdriver, push to release the tension on the stem and pull it out. Then you have to remove the plastic bezel in front of the instrument cluster. There are screws on the side, so open the drivers door and remove those screws. There are screws around instrument cluster, remove those and several other screws. Remove the plastic bezel, at this point you should remove the threaded washer that holds the switch in place. After that you can remove it from the back. Disconnect the wires, etc. Save the stem as you need to put it in the new switch. Installation is the reverse of what you have done.

    How do you remove the battery in my 85 corvette? Do you need to remove the fan and other equipment on top of it or is there an access panel?

    To remove the battery, you need to remove the small panel that is in front of the driver's door. There are 3 screws in the front, by the wheel bay, one on top, and one below in the narrow crevice between that panel and the long narrow panel that goes all the way to the back. After releasing those screws you can remove the panel and gain access to the battery.

    My rear hatch want open from the outside nor will the glass open. I had it checked and they said it wasn't getting power to the door but didn't know what the problem was.

    I had the same trouble and found that I had to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is probably defective like mine. I had to release the door by going from the inside and opening a little plastic door and open the whole hatch by using the emergency lever. Then I had to unscrew the plastic panel near the glass hatch and pry it apart just enough to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is just a small connector that pulls apart. There are two connectors. One for the back wiper and then the glass hatch so make sure you disconnect the right one. This allows me to use the whole door but the glass hatch becomes useless unless you get a new switch.

    1985 corvette, pulled the hood release and the diverside opened but not the passengers side so now i can't open the hood, how do i release the passenger side that is stuck

    have someone push down on that part of the hood while you pull the release. Usually that frees it and it should be adjusted up so it will open again
