The button is ether bad or the wires came off behind where its mounted.If you push it and here a click then that is not the case.look at the lever at the gas door it might just be stuck or jamed. to look at it you will have to have someone repedidly bush the button while you GENTLY pop the door open by prying it open,Just WATCH THE PAINT JOB...LOL

Gas relase wont open gas door


You mean you release the handle to open the gas door but the gas door is not open...?
A: If so. Ask a helper to pull the gas door release lever and hold it.
Now you need to manually open the door by hands. The spring load or clip that push the door open might be bend or broken. If so fix it or replace new one.

To manuelly open 2003 Maxima gas filler door


I'm having this problem with my 2003 nissan maxima. I keep the driver side door open and keep my hand at the edge where the fuel door hinge is, and reache the button with a screwdriver or pen, and as it press the button, I push on the fuel door panel and it comes out. I'm going to replace the fuel door sooner or later. It all looks kinda dumb at the gas station.

Gas door won't open


FIRST: try using the gas release lever from inside the car with the driver side door closed. My 2006 Jetta gas release lever would only work if the driver door were shut and I pulled the release from the inside car interior. Turns out it was a severed door wire (NOT THE RELEASE CABLE). Thus when the door was open, it stretched the damaged wire and so none of the door controls worked unless the door was closed. ie windows, trunk release, and gas release. It was a $600 repair at the dealership, parts and labor! :(

Where is the button to release the gas door for a 1996 jetta gls


There is no button release for your gas door, if you lock the car doors the gas door will lock to, unlock car doors gas door locks.
If the gas door stays locked then the locking linkage might be defective.

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.

Gas cap door will not open when release latch is


You might try having a friend bump the gas cover with the heel of their hand while you **** briskly on the release. Have done this a couple of times and once opened, you can use a little lubricant on the exposed parts. Sometimes that is enough.

Gas tank door not opening


Hi there,
Have you looked in the trunk on the side that the gas tank is on? There may be a fuel release switch. Couple of other things to try is to unlock all your doors from the inside of your car and/ or try pushing in and out on the gas door over and over until, hopefully, it triggers the device. I hope that will help you. I will keep trying to find the answer. Let me know. Have a great night.~MWD

Fuel door and truck release fuse


I had the same problem last fall and had my mechanic check all fuses, he could not find the problem. Later my son was in the glove box and then I remembered the valet button disables the trunk and gas door so the person parking your car cannot snoop in your trunk or get to your gas cap. push the valet button in the glove box and see if you can release the trunk and gas door. Hope this works for you, it can be a pain opening the trunk every time you want to put gas in the car....good luck...........

Gas Tank door stuck


Try having a second person pull on the door as you press the button, and also listen by the door to see if you can hear the release latch working. Also, open your trunk, and on the same side as your gas tank will be a little pull handle as an emergency release for your fuel door. It may be behind the trunk liner, but usualy they are easily accessable. and if you have any other problems, refer to the owner's manual to locate the release.
