The manual (driver side) door will only open a few inches, because it thinks the gas cap door is open-a safety feature.

I have a toyota Sienna 2005 minivan. The sliding manual (not power door) door on the driver side is catching on the mechanism build in to stop the door from sliding all the way open when the gas cap door is open. After filling up the other day, and closing the gas cap door, I am no longer able to open up the sliding manual door on the driver side. This has happened before ver randomly and I used to be able to get it to open by manually pushing the little black "release" button on the inside of the gas cap door a few times, but this no longer works. How to fix this? Thank you in advance.

How can I prevent a envelope pillow cover from popping open on the back?

I have made two of the envelope pillow covers and on the back the opening does not lay close and flat like the picture shows.  My thought was a tight fitting pillow would cause the opening to split open but both pillows fit loose and still the opening still does not stay closed. Any ideas on what is causing the gap?  Any ideas on how to prevent it?

RE: https://www.instructables.com/id/Secret-Hideout-1/?download=pdf I can download a PDF, however when I try to open it, it gives me the following message.

I get the error when trying to get a normal PDF, NOT a customized one. The customized one opens. Thanks. Catherine iMac, System 10.10.5 Firefox, version 43.0b2

Temp controller

I need to activate a garage door opener  with temp control. Opener uses momentary switches   There is a solarium on the out side of my shop garage door, When the temp between the door and the solarium reaches +/- 90 degrees  the door would open and +/-60 degrees the door would shut. Because the opener needs momentary contacts a regular thermostat  will not work. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated..

How can I open and close a window that works on a roller from left to right?

The house we have incorporates a security panel that prevents would be thieves from breaking in. My mother is close to 70 and from the kitchen counter the door I am trying to open and close is 38" from the edge of the counter. She is 5'6 and does not have the energy to slide the door open. She usually unlocks the door and then steps outside on to the balcony and opens it from there. I want to find a way to make it electric if possible. I haven't finished the tilework so I can still run electrical lines and switches to the area. The best idea I can come up with 12v automotive power window motor that is mounted on the right side of the opening. A dog ear be mounted on the top part of the opening for support, and a dog ear be mounted on the door...just right of the LEFT dog ear support itself which will have motion. Attach (weld) a screw onto the power window motor. When engaging the window motor to open the threaded rod revolves in place and the door opens. Same happens when the door closes. My problem for when the door is ACTUALLY supposed to stop in order to be locked by the built in handle. It needs a limiting switch that is engaged to cut power when the proper distance has been traveled. I got this idea from my gate opener for my driveway, the only difference there is that it operates on a chain and has 2 limiting switches for open and close. My father wants to go a simple route and put a pulley on each side of the window and if you want to open / close the window you pull the appropriate line. I just see that as ugly and will be breaking eventually.
