Your fuel door lock probably works on a cable set-up if the lever is broken by the gas tank you may be able to access it by the inside of your fender well or when you open your filler door you should be able to unscrew your filler hose line and see what the problem is. to replace it you may have to drop your tank. if you do not care about the lock then open the door and super glue the lock tab back . however you may have a warning light that will stay on. if tab is broken you may be able to glue it if the cable is broken then you will have to replace it.

Fuel door won't open on a 2008 g8 pontiac


Fuel Fill Door Description and Operation
The fuel door latch actuator shares the circuit with the driver door latch assembly. The body control module (BCM), upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator, as well as a fuel filler door release actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock and fuel filler door release actuators is connected to ground by the I/P fuse block through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors, along with the fuel filler door release, will lock or unlock as commanded.
Circuit/System Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator.
  2. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 1 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  4. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 2 and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  6. Connect a test lamp between the control circuit terminal 1 and control circuit terminal 2.
  7. Ignition ON, command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK by using the door lock switch. The test lamp should illuminate while commanding the LOCK and UNLOCK states.
  8. ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains OFF during either command, test either control circuit for a short to ground.

  9. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the fuel door release actuator.
Component Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator
  2. Install a 15A fused jumper wire between the control terminal 1 and 12V. Momentarily install a jumper wire between the control terminal 2 and ground. The fuel door release actuator should perform the LOCK/UNLOCK function.
  3. ?‡'
    If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

  4. Reverse the jumper wires. The fuel door release actuator should perform the UNLOCK/LOCK function.
?‡'
If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

Child safety lock is on, how do I unlock it?


The child safety lock on the car doors is usually controlled by a switch that is located along the outside edge of the door. Open the door and look along the outside edge of the door for a small switch. This switch sets the child safety lock to on or off. The switch may look similar to the photo I've included. If you still cannot find the child safety lock, please check the owner's manual for your car.

Rear doors not opening from inside car ?


Perhaps the child safety locks are flipped to secure. With the doors open, look at the door latch and you should see the safety slide switch right there. The doors will not open from the inside if the switch is set to lock. Slide it to unlock for normal operation.
