Question about 2006 Bentley Continental GT

Release fuel door

Just bought this vehicle. I am being told it has a remote power fuel flap release (whatever the hell that means) It did not have an owners manual and I cant figure out how to pop the fuel door to put gasoline in it. I am being told by the salesperson that all I have to do is have all of the vehicle "unlocked" and I should be able to push in on the fuel door and it will open. NOT HAPPENING. Any suggestions?

There should be a button on the driver door in the area of the power window switches for the trunk lid and the gas door. if that does not work there is a cable in the trunk of the vehicle labeled to pull to open gas door

How do i manually release the fuel door ? ( the dash remote release just stopped working )


The cable is accessed from the boot! No manual release but by removing the boot trim behind the petrol flap you will be able to reach the cable and pull on it to release the flap....probably just needs the cable lubricating with WD40!

Trunk will not open fuel door will not open all fuses ok


You have listed the vehicle is a 1987 Jaguar XJ6. The trunk is not electronic and only unlocks with the key as well as both the gas doors. Any issues here then it is your key or the actual trunk latch. If you do have a 1988 model year then the trunk lock has 3 positions. locked all the time, unlocked all the time or the vertical position locks and unlocks with the vehicles drivers door lock. If the trunk button (paddle) is loose and moves but nothing happens then the inside rod has come loose and you will have to manually operate the latch by removing the license plate and taking a long screw driver through the lower plastic bungs. The fuel flap is a separate unite and does have a manual release but you need to open the trunk to get to it. If the fuel flap stays locked all the time then the actually filler neck module will need replacing.If you have a 1997 which has the electronic release button to open the trunk (95-2003) Then you will need to firstly lock all door and unlock the drivers door 2 times. Check the fuel flap is now released, if not then the fuel flap actuator located on the filler neck inside the trunk is bad. If the trunk does not open with the remote, inside car switch and trunk mounted switch then the passenger side trunk harness is broken. Open the trunk with the key and on the right(passenger) hinge there is a grey plastic cover, remove that cover and carefully peel back the wiring harness cover and you will find 1 or more broken wires. Once the wires are repaired then I recommend you zip tie them in place and retest the trunk release button.If this does not answer any of your questions please feel free to email mejpseuro@gmail.com

Is there a manual way of opening the fuel flap when the central locking fails?


Not knowing what kind of vehicle you are driving, I can only answer in general terms, sorry. Most vehicles should have some type of release handle inside the trunk for the fuel door. It may be under some carpet or a behind a trim panel.

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.

    Remote keyless entry will not unlock vehicle, but interior elec power works, NO ENGINE!


    I had the same problem with my 2007 Sahara Unlimited. I'll make a long story as short as possible. For a number of years my son ran a Chrysler / Jeep dealership and I contacted him (I bought my Jeep from him before he got out of the business) and he told me this is a sporadic problem with the Wrangler line. To the point of calling him I had tried everything and nothing worked...insert key, turn, nothing...all electrical worked, lights, power windows, radio, etc, etc. He told me to disconnect the negative power connection on the battery for a second or two then re-attach. Insert key, engine starts, everything works as advertised.

    Essentially, my son told me this "re-boots" the system. For whatever, and to his knowledge, never explained by Jeep, this fix works but no idea as to why it happens in the first place.

    Hope this is of some help...though I suggest that there may be more "fixes" to this problem.

    Regards...
