SOURCE: The fuel door release on 2003 Honda Accord is not working.

Open the trunk and pull back the drivers side liner inside of the trunk. You can follow the black cable to the fuel door. When you reach a black wing tipped connector you twist the 90 degrees and it will pop out and the door will open.
What was the original problem?

SOURCE: '89 Park Avenue fuel door will not open

You may find a release for the fuel filler door in the trunk. Look behind the carpet on the side the filler is on and at about the same level.

SOURCE: Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic

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.

SOURCE: Is there an emergency release for the fuel door on

You'll have to remove the trim on the inside of the car right behind the fuel tank in order to release it manually.

If you're lucky, the cable may have separated either at the fuel door, or at the lever and you may be able to run a new cable by threading it through the old one. Otherwise, you'll have to remove all the trim to trace the cable. You may also be lucky and that the cable runs under the bottom of your car

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open


The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.

Emergency fuel door release for 2000 Volvo S80


Copied from Volvo Forums


I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,

I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.

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.
