Question about 2004 Honda Civic
I have a 2004 Honda Civic EX 4-door. When I press the fuel tank door release lever (located on the floor, to the left of the drivers' seat), the fuel tank door on the outside of the vehicle does not open.
The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.
Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.

As stated in previous solutions the cable needs to be repaired or replaced. The temporary solution is to go through the trunk to release the cable.
