SOURCE: Volvo s40 rear doors wont open inside or outside

There is a child safety switch on the rear latch assembly that prevents opening from the inside handle. This switch may be on. Check your owners manual for more info.

You can jimmy the latch if you're really lucky, but the latch is likely broken and you will have to break the door to get it open.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My Volvo S60 Fuel flap won't lock or unlock,

The pin solenoid that activates the remote locking is not receiving any electrical signal, it must have been unhooked. This solenoid is right by the filler door, inside the boot. The alarm activates on electrical differences, such as dome light, boot light or filler door electrical demand when it is activated. Hence, the alarm wont trip off if door is opened manually from the outside.

I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,

I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.

How to open the fuel door on a 2000 volvo s80


In the 2000, when the doors are unlocked with the remote, the fuel door is also unlocked. If not, check the fuse under the dash behind glove box

I have a 2001 Volvo XC (V70), I think the fuel gauge may be frozen. Is this possible?


Electrical issue is causing your hassles. Look for a bad ground in circuit common to those items.

My front doors won't open on 1997 toyota avalon


The door gaskets could be frozen to the body, or you could have ice in the door latches.
Can you drive the car into a warm garage ?

I have a volvo v70 2001. The fuel door won't open. I thought there was a way to open it from inside the car, but I am having trouble.


There is. V70 means it is a wagon so it is going to be on the same side as the fuel door inside of the car. The handle is usually yellow or a neon green. Check where the jack is kept.

I have a 2009 Audi A4. All the doors are unlocked and the fuel door will not open. Is there a switch or another way to open the door? Could it be a fuse?


Pull the trunk wall lining back by the fuel filler. On my 99 A4 there is a red cable there - it's an emergency release that will pop the gas door open.

Fuel door


Unlock the drivers door from the outside, as you would when you want to unlock all the doors at the same time (with a double turn). Your fuel door should open as long as all the other doors are unlocked.
