SOURCE: Fuel door wont stay closed

there is a little metal tesion bar/bracket that keeps it in the open or closed position. If your fuel door itself is not bent or damaged then I would check this bar to see if it has been bent or out of place. I'm not sure if there is a replacement part; I just bent mine a little to get it to stay closed. Unfortunatly I left it open the other day when I went thru a car was after fueling and the door is bent now so I have another issue to deal with.

hope that helps

SOURCE: '89 Park Avenue fuel door will not open

You may find a release for the fuel filler door in the trunk. Look behind the carpet on the side the filler is on and at about the same level.

Gas door on my 2008 sts wont stay close


I assume it has a push button for the fuel door. If so then look at the latch that the fuel door grabs on to see if it is broken or stuck on open. If stuck push on it a couple of times and spay it with penetrating oil to loosen. There is other possibilities but let's start there for now. I hope this is helpful.

I can' t locate the fuel pump reset switch in my 2000 Cadillac STS. It is the model where the battery is in the backseat.


sorry but the 2000 STS does not have a reset for the fuel pump. you will need to run diagnostics on the fuel pump system to find why it is not working, the first thing to do is test for a 2 second power pules to the fuel pump when you turn on the key if there is then replace the pump, if not then it is time to start running some tests on the control circuits.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies


Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

Check the engine fuel pump pressure.

Replace the fuel pump relay,fuel filter,fuel pump and fuel pump stainer at the same time.
