Fuel door release latch not working

I have a 2006 Scion XB. The fuel lever located on the floor of the driver's side pulls up easily and the latch located inside the fuel door cover moves freely. But the door to the fuel cap cannot be opened unless one person is constantly pulling up on the floor lever. Has anyone encountered this and what can I do?

The small metal spring has broken on the hinged side of the fuel door. Easy to change, and costs very little from the dealership.

The trunk release lever will not open the trunk. the trunk will open when the key is used but not by the release lever.

So, when somebody else pull the cable, do you see the latch move back and forward from the trunk? There is nothing complicated about a manual cable, it just pull the cable and there should be a reaction to it. If there is no action from the latch, no movement at all, then the cable is just broken. If there is a little movement, not enough to pull the latch to open the trunk, you still need to replace the cable.

Why wont fuel door release will not open?

The latch might be stuck. Take a small screw driver and carefully insert from side of fuel door (avoid scratching and denting) and get some one to pull the release lever inside the car. Pull out the door carefully. If this is not working then the release cable is broken or has come off from the lever. Will need to be restored before you can do anything. Otherwise you will damage the door latch.

There should be an adjustment point on this cable at either end. Adjust to make the cable shorter and this should solve your problem.

Fuse box

The fuse box is located just above and to the right of the hood latch release. There's that little cubby there. Put your finger in the hole and pull back toward yourself and down slightly. It should just pop out. Fuse panel is behind there.
