Question about 2005 Kia Optima

Trunk and gas door release does not work

Due to the fact that the trunk and gas door release unit is not seated in the door properly, the rolling up of the driver side window, actuated the trunk release. This happened for about 2 weeks and now the unit does not function at all. What is the solution? do I need a new unit or new wiring?

thank you

You need the new button panel. when reinstalling make sure to keep all wiring away from the window track.

How do I open stuck fuel door on 1998 lincoln mrk 8


There is another release in the right rear passenger side of the trunk. A little WD-40 on the latch will help.

there should be a trunk release latch in the car my Camry's release latch is on the floor next to my driver side seat it says trunk right on it along with the release for the gas door thats a picture of a gas pump hope this helps you if its not on the floor there look along the underside of your dash for a button some cars even have them in the glove box although i don't think that applies for an older Toyota like yours

Locking Gas Door will not open when release button is pushed. Solenoid snap can be heard. Trunk pull-cable will not release latch either. Can release be accessed from trunk-side via carpet...


Trunk pull-cable Access Is by way of IN TRUNK, A HIGH QUALITY SPRAY TYPE Lubricant Should Be Used here to Free Up Mechanical Parts, Allowing for Proper Operation of this Door

My gas flap is stuck closed. We had to pry it open yesterday to fill the tank. 2 months ago the same thing happened, but it has worked since then.


If you have fuel door release cable & door is open, verify that cable moves in & out when you activate it. If yes you can adjust tab that it rests on so it will release properly. Just bend tab slightly inward at first, till it releases correctly.

Where is the fuel door release latch on a 1994 Lincoln Continental? Just bo't the car, but I'll have to put gas in it eventually...maybe sooner....


Its been a long time since I have been in one of those, but seems to me it was on the floor by the seat.. if not there is always an emergency fuel door release in the trunk, on the same side as the fuel door, but it might be hidden behind the carpet on the side of the trunk... I also remmber a yellow button in the glove box but that might be trunk release!

I locked my keys in the trunk of my 2000 toyota corolla ce,


Yes, or you may have to remove the rear seats to gain access to the trunk area.Roll your windows down or leave the doors open to ensure there is sufficient air flow inside of the car. You do not want to run out of oxygen.
