Faulty fuse or bad cable is the most likely problem.

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

Where is the button to open gas cap on 2013 jetta


The outer door to the gas cap doesn't lock. You just press on the outer door and it clicks open. This is a problem, however, b/c there isn't a lockable gas cap available right now.

To manuelly open 2003 Maxima gas filler door


I'm having this problem with my 2003 nissan maxima. I keep the driver side door open and keep my hand at the edge where the fuel door hinge is, and reache the button with a screwdriver or pen, and as it press the button, I push on the fuel door panel and it comes out. I'm going to replace the fuel door sooner or later. It all looks kinda dumb at the gas station.

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

First open glove box and look in the left top corner and you should see a black valet button. Press this then see if the fuel door release works then. If you still need the replacement get the part number from your local Lincoln or Ford dealer

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.
