It doesn't always work, but you could try pulling the fuses and putting them back in. You probably have 2 fuses for it.

There is no remote fuel door release or lock for the fuel door. I bought a locking gas cap for mine. It's all manual pull harder than retaining spring. Door has a spring that holds it open and will shut at about 45mph if you forget to close it after pumping gas.

Had a question about this yestrerday, they had a blanket caught in the hatch.
If you can not get the latch to release from the outside, you may have to take the panel off on the inside and try to unbolt the latch.

Most likely the fuel pump is not running because the crash sensor, aka the fuel pump cutoff switch, has tripped. They usually have a reset button on them and are located by the in line fuel pump.

How do I gain access under the hood?


By pulling the hood release located inside the vehicle on the drivers side. If the inside latch is not broken have someone push down very hard on the hood while you pull on the hood release. If the inside latch is broken you may be able to get under the front of the vehicle and use a long screwdriver to reach up and pop the latch.

Where is the release for the gas tank on the Ford Escape?


Maybe you means FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

This switch is located in the front

passenger's footwell, behind a

flip-up cover, by the kick panel

access cover.

To reset the switch:

1. Turn the ignition to the off

position.

2. Check the fuel system for leaks.

3. If no leaks are apparent, reset the

switch by pushing in on the reset

button.

4. Turn the ignition to the on

position.

5. Wait a few seconds and return

the key to the off position.
6. Make another check for leaks.

Probably a issue with your actuator... there is a recall due to the "latching system does not meet the inertia load requirement" might want to check with the dealership to see if your vehicle is with this group, hope this helps :)
