Might be both. Often the problem is in the control switch itself. You can check this by removing the door panel to access the electrical wiring to the switch, then jumper the two wires of the control switch to see if the fuel door solenoid operates and the door opens - if it does, the switch is the problem. If it doesn't, Go to and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle. Hope this helps.

Rear door wont open with inside or outside handle

Sounds as if the linkage to the latch has become disconnected. If you can remove the inner door panel (may not be possible with door shut) you should be able to see the problem. If not, this may take someone with knowledge of your specific make. It is possible to open some with a "slim jim" type of tool, but not all.

Gas tank lid will not open when switch is pushed.

Open trunk and pull cable in left rear side trunk panel. This is an emergency release for the fuel door. You may have to pull gently out on fuel door while tugging at release cable several times. When the door opens oil latch solenoid tip and bend tab on door latch about 2mm towards hinge.
The fuel door is flimsy and tends to get bent. Once it is bent it prevents the latch solenoid tip from releasing the door latch.

Passanger side door will not open i know the screws to take the door panel off are on the side but can any one tell me if i can open it another way

You can try pulling up on the lock piece located by the window several times really fast! Another wards, grab on to the lock pull it up push it down and do that 3-4 times and then try unlocking with the remote if that doesn't work, try pulling up on it again and at the same time try opening the door from the outside, people don't understand that with Saturn's the piece that holds all the lock parts in place is a thin piece of metal that can get out of place by driving over time from the bumps and jarring that your car goes through, its not difficult to **** it back into place basically! Of course there are springs in the bottoms of the doors, sometimes by chance that spring could be sprung.

2002 passat wagon 1.8T Fuel door won't open, how to manually open. running out of gas

the problem is the fuel door release switch in the driver's door or the actuator. I have seen the switch wear out but I've only heard rumors of the actuator dying. There is a contact inside the switch that may be touching or not touch when the switch is pulled. Compare to the trunk release switch. as for manually opening it... it is quite a simple system however no manual cable to pull. If you pry at the carpeting behind rear seats you'll be able to access that area it is possible to manually open it. It's always possible that it is frozen though so maybe try some hot water or pulling it into a garage if you have one.

Door ajar comes on almost every time i drive it

Try spraying wd40 or other rust penetrant into the driver's door latch. Open and close the door several times to allow the lube to loosen up the door ajar switch. Dirt gets on the switch and causes it to stick. It may take several tries.

You can use WD-40, open door and spray directly into latch on door about 5 seconds to make sure you get plenty into latch to reach door ajar switch at bottom of latch,pull up on outside handle and use small screwdriver and work latch back and forth several times to work WD_40 into latch this should solve your problem,GOOD LUCK!

Drivers door does not open

Do you have triple A membership? if you have or your friend has it, you can call the triple A to open the door for you, it will cost you nothing.

Because there is a plastic clamp hold the bar connected to the door opener was broken or loss.

If you don’t have AAA membership, if you do not want to call Lock Smith, you can make a flat metal tool, just like one foot stake measurement , it should be around 18” and cut the front part like a C hook , shot from outside window near the handle, try several times see if you can hook the open bar from inside the panel, if you touch the inside handle bar, just pull it up, the door will open.
