Re: The fuel door release on 2003 Honda Accord is not...
Open the trunk and pull back the drivers side liner inside of the trunk. You can follow the black cable to the fuel door. When you reach a black wing tipped connector you twist the 90 degrees and it will pop out and the door will open. What was the original problem?

it could be the e-brake may not be completely down allowing the switch to not be pushed all the way off, also the switch may be out of alignment not in the proper place. if the e-brake cable sticks a little it may the handle up enough to not turn off the switch.
There is no emergency latch. The best way to get it open is to remove the cable from the release latch in the footwell, then use a pair of pliers to pull the cable and open the hood. You might even have to strip the cable covering back a little to get to the cable.
open it manually then inspect its lock and release system if either seem malfuntioned try to junkyard the peices and change em out. otherwise it is in your release lever and that im not sure of. ill do research for ya.
In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.
Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.
I had the same problem. Pressing the fuel door unlock button did not work, and I couldn't find any emergency release in the cargo/trunk area. Eventually, I clicked the Lock / Unlock button on the key fob a couple of times and tried again, this time holding the fuel door release button for 1-2 seconds, and it worked. I then sprayed some door lock lubricant into the fuel door lock in case there was something sticking in the mechanism. Don't know if this truly "fixed" the problem, but it's working now.
