Trunk won,t open so I can get to boot to open mu gas tank

Have you checked the fuse panel for blown fuses? If not, check there first. If so, check to be sure all the wiring harnesses in and around the fuse panel are tight ans secure. If you're really in a pinch and you have rear folding seats you can crawl into the trunk that way.

2003 sl500 the right side line is leaking hydronic fluid and the top won't open

your problem is the fluid is low and doesn't have enough fluid in the pump to operate. you can add fluid at the rear underneath your spare tire. the fluid is a special blend only at mercedes benz dealer. anything else will cause the top cylinders to fail and it is very costly to repair. the fluid is about $20. It leaks because you have a leaking seal in the top cylinder. Mercedes knew this would happen this is why it leaks right in front of your face hard to ignore that huh.

Brake lights won't work

I imagine that includes all three brake lights on the rear. If not then please clarify further..

Check condition of fuses and power to the brake light switch which sits at the top portion of the brake pedal arm. If the switch has power, then check that it is making a circuit when the pedal is depressed. If not, then replace the switch. (most likely issue)
If it isn't the issue, then check all rear light cluster connections and wiring loom for condition and connection.

It's likely a fuse or the switch though, so check those first.

I already replaced the stoplight switch on my honda 2003 and my brakes still won't work. What could be wrong?

I need an electrical diagram showing wiring from the base,to power windows on a 2003 Chevrolet Venture,my power windows won't work either side in my 2003 Venture,checked power at fuse box next to...

Check the main fuse box next to the battery, # 8 max fuse powers IGN MAIN 2 Ignition Switch to Fuses (I/P): BCM PRGRM, FRT HVAC LOW/MED BLWR, FRT WPR/WSHR, HVAC/DRL, MALL/RADIO/DIC, PWR QRT VENT, RR HVAC, RR WPR/WSHR, SWC ACCY & PWR WDO Circuit Breaker.

#3 circuit breaker is the front window breaker, try swapping it out with another breaker beside it and thats located in the side dash panel also.

The common cause of failed power window function is the switch on the doors going bad from dirt. Does the power window on the passenger side go down with the passenger side switch?? if it does then its a bad drivers side and and try cleaning the switch with electrical contact cleaner. 95% of the time this will save you from buying a new switch.

keep us posted and thanks you for using fixya

2005 PT convertible top won't raise - can top be manually raised?

Check your manual for the location of the top fuse.
Your car left the factory as a hardtop and was converted to a soft top by a Chrysler authorized company so the top fuse(s) may not be with the other fuses.
