Try using the manual release lever on the upper left side in the trunk. If it still won't open then the door may be jammed.

Were would the fuse to the fuel door be located? My fuel door will not pop open, when I press the fuel button. Either a fuse has blown or there is no power to the release button.


the problem will be more likely a broken spring at the fuel door
it flips the door open but when it breaks the door still remains locked closed
it takes 2 people , one to hold the button to open and the other to pry the door open
once open replace the spring ( available from a spare parts department at the service dealer )
take it to a service dealer for a quicker fix as it is a common fault with all cars

1995 grand marquis fuel door button not working


when the small spring that flips the fuel door open when the button/ lever is pressed/pulled ,it gives the impression that the control is not working. Check out the problem by having someone operate the control while you are listening at the door. If you hear the latch moving then the spring is broken/missing. You may be able to get to the latch by removing the boot trim and moving the latch enough to open the door.

I have a 2002 Hyundai Sonata and the fuel door release button is not working. When I press it, it is not opening the door. What do i do


you will need to have someone press the button while you push in on the door, if that does not up it the do the same thing but with a screw drive gently pry out on it. either way once it is up spray with WD40 PB Blaster to lube it up and it should fix the problem. hope this helped tim

Petrol Fuel Cap door won't open


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.

2003 Jetta TDI - Door locks open fuel door


Look for a short in the wiring harness in the door. The wires from the door lead to the convenience module (controls the doors and windows and some other settings including remote fob) that is under the dash. It sounds like some wires are crossed. VWs are also notorious for having problems with window regulators. They make the windows go up and down and are in the doors. Something might have happen to that and it cause a short. VW just extended the warranty on the window regulators to seven years because of these problems so you should be able to take it to a dealer and not get charged (this is in the U.S. at least, don't know about the rest of the world). The extended warrranty was not limited to original owners but you might want to ask the service people about it first.
