Sounds like the solenoid is defective, but the petrol cap can be opened by opening the boot and putting your hand down the side of the back panel (petrol cap side). You should be able to feel the solenoid and on the back there is a lever that can be pulled out which will release the petrol cap latch.

Have the driver's door window open and the front bonnet open,
we are going to listen for a clicking noise, the noise that we are listening for is the Compressor engagement being activated after three seconds from the control panel.
Start the engine and switch on the air conditioning by pressing the AC button (with a request for maximum cold temperature and the passenger compartment fan running).
If you hear that clicking noise, then it is most likely that you have a leak from the AC system or a possibly in need of a top up do to service of the system not been carried out.
Otherwise if you don't hear that clicking noise then there is a case that the Compressor clutch is not being engaged.
Do to the following reasons
1. fuse blown in the UPC in other terms the fuse box (engine compartment)
2. AC Compressor faulty
3. AC pressure switch faulty
4. If there is not the slightest bit of pressure left in the system which is very unlikely.
I hope this information was somewhat helpful for a real diagnosis test a diagnostic tool is needed.
