With ignition on, push button and fuel door open message should come on. If not, check fuses under dash behind glove box.

Open fuel door on a 2002 fifi megane,cannot open fuel door to get to petrol cap


Not knowing exactly what a fifi megane looks like I'm assuming you are speaking of a locked fuel door, either electrically controlled or by cable. Most manufactures have an emergency pull cable tab in the trunk compartment directly under the fuel door for such purposes. Then go back and repair the original problem.

1994 Saab Areo 9000 power locks will not work therefore cannot open gas door. Tried changing fuse but that didn't work


Check fuse #15 if you have not done so & check in the trunk for a manual over ride under the tool kit. The 90-92 models had one, not sure if your model does. I don't have a lot of info on the 94 A 9000-- Maybe a Saab expert will chime in with more advise.

Fuel tank release button doesnt work is there an emergency switch somewhere to open it?


I can't say I'm sure on this but almost all vehicles that have locking fuel doors have a release cable inside the trunk near where the door is located. May be behind the trunk liner material in that general area. If you have your owners manual it should have a description of the fuel door operation in it somewhere along with how to open it should the normal system fail. Good luck and hope this helps!

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.

My remote central locking system has failed (not battery in fob) and I cannot access my fuel tank. Can I manually release the tank cover without removing all the rear panelling? VW Passat Estate 05 plate.


vw doesnt have an emergency release handle that i know of,you will have to remove the panel and then twist the cable end where the head of the gas door lock is, as you twist it will pop out, unless its electric release then do the same except there no cable just the lock head and a connector. the release seloniod may be bad or stuck, or the door may be stuck.hope this helps,

2002 santa fe can't release fuel door/cover


There should be an adjustment point on this cable at either end. Adjust to make the cable shorter and this should solve your problem.

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.
