2001 Cadilac Deville - Gas Door broken

With this model comes the glove box button for openning the gas door.. the gas door is broken & will not click close...

Will this run down the battery...

Would I have to buy a new door or can I just purchase the part inside the door?

Help.... It will not keep a charge...

You will have to replace door or find something that will fit in the hole that will push in at the same time.

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...........

1991 Cadillac Deville - fuel door broken

hi cindy from the uk am i correct in thinking that the actual fuel filler door is ok? but the catch that it closes onto is worne/broken? therefor you have the door open at random ? i would think you can buy this catch seperately ? but as you mention a button in glove box opens this door ? is it electrical ? or a manual ie cable pull or push ? if electrical operated? opening then no problem of draining battery once button released however i would check up on cost of this part you req and availability first ? may i offer a temporary solution for now? if you visit local hardware store? and look at the possibility of using a kitchen unit door magnet? that you could stick using back to back tape ? on the door and other part on inside of cove that has filler pipe ? im sure that with a little imagination you could do it ? and for time being no one will know ? and not be tempted to siphon fuel from your tank having seen door is not locked ? i have done this repair on uk cars and works fine as for car battery ? not holding charge? best advice is pop along to local car store / garage ? and ask them if they could check/test battery condition ? it only takes 2 minutes ! and not usually a fee here in uk it is tested for free if your battery is old? it may have one or more cells deteriated with age and so not holdin charge if test prove battery is defect? may i suggest you shop around for best offers also surf the e bay ? hope this helps and inspires you? and wish you luck

If the glove box is anything like mine it is a modular piece assembled with screws.... let them break the handle.. get a replacement first from a junk dealer and have the broken part swapped out. Its like a seat belt catch in my 97 deville. The glove box in mine flopped open and the catch had broken and fell down the door of the glovebox itself. The whole door is assembled with philips screws and should be easily removed and a new latch put in.. whoever does it should not cost more than 50.00 in labor MAYBE unless you have a friend that would do it for a beer. I saw a complete glove box on ebay for 40.00 shipping ontop of that .. i saw the latch for 20.00 +shipping.
