Hi! Check the cable or the latch on the door to see if it is secured properly.
NB The cable is for opening purpose and the latch is for closing.

I have a Holden Barina Hatch 2012 model.


I think the system on that car enables you to open the petrol flap once the drivers door is unlocked (either by pulling the cap open or pressing on the flap).

1. Lock the car using the central locking.
2. Insert the key on the drivers door, turn it once and unlock it. Open the door to check you have unlocked it. Then turn the key in the lock again as if you were unlocking it a 2nd time.
3. Now open the petrol flap as the lock should have released.

Fuel flap stuck on my clio 55 plate


Get a flashlight so you can see where the catch is on the door. When you locate the mechanism you should be able to release it with a small screwdriver by depressing the locking tab.

rear doors have a child lock in the door that you can set to stop children opening the door from the inside. IT is normally in the rear flat section of the door and is a small lever.. I think that in working on the door this lever was moved to the lock position . You should be able to open the door from the outside if this is the problem

Drivers door and fuel cap not locking with central locking have to lock door with key also fuel cap does not lock all other doors lock and open with central locking drivers door opens with central locking


Hello Alan,

I would suspect the fuel flap actuator has failed. Open the trunk. In the right rear corner is the access cover. Open it and you'll see some insulation matting near the top. Behind it is a fuse/relay carrier, I believe either fuse 55 or 56 is blown. If so the fuel flap actuator needs replaced. The fuse also controls the central locking system.

Well you have a few issues here. As for the drivers door not locking/unlocking the vehicle, it sounds like the linkage that comes off the back of the tumbler has broken off. You can tell if this has happened because of the locks and also you won't feel any resistance when you turn the key in the door. For the gas flap lock either there is a leak in the vacuum system for the locks or the gas flap lock is bad. To manually open the gas flap lock you need to go through the trunk and behind the trunk panel where the gas flap lock is there should be a lever to manually unlock it or you can remove the screws that hold in the lock.

Petrol filler flap stuck in locked position


Sounds like the solenoid is defective, but the petrol cap can be opened by opening the boot and putting your hand down the side of the back panel (petrol cap side). You should be able to feel the solenoid and on the back there is a lever that can be pulled out which will release the petrol cap latch.
