The lever that causes the fuel cover to open is not openiong the little fuel door.

most but not all have a back up cable in trunk not sure if yours does or not
more than likely your cable is broke somewhere if you dont have backup in trunk remove trunk trim panel and see if you can find where cable goes to fuel door and pull on it if that doesnt work cut the cable (you be replacing it anyhow) then peel back so u can get at wire inside cable pull on cable (might need pliers) and door should open
if all this fails pry door open with screwdriver

Are there other accessories such as door locks and the radio memory that are not working? Check for a bad fuse name radio, radio memory, or accessory.

2001 cadillac catera. radio, trunk release, and gas cover release are intermittent and go out at the same time. is this a fuse issue or a wiring or relay problem that might need to go to a mechanic?

The problem is with the body computer; my wifes 01 lost the fuel door, trunk lid, radio, clock and sunroof functions intermittently, but all at the same time. It became really annoying reaching through the back seat into the trunk to open the trunk.

I installed a used 99' body computer, took it to the dealer, reprogrammed the computer to accept the existing radio (when you switch the computer, the radio; Bose, will be locked out) because it's married to the car through the body computer. This is the security system used to protect theft of the radio.
If you remove the radio from one car and install in to another, the radio will lock out. You need a tech II scanner to program the computer.
Dealer charged me $120 for labour which is minimum 1 hour shop time. Actual programming took only 10 minutes. That's why GM is doing so well on the car market. I have no pity for them.

Gas tank won't open, trunk won't open, radio stopped working, left tail lamp won't work

It's the body control module. It's located under the dash to the left of the steering column. I had same problem, went to the junk yard and bought one and the problem went away. Dealer wants $600.00-700.00 for the BCM, I paid $30.00

Sounds like a bad ground wire or connection, as these are on different fuses.
