I had the same problem...brought it back to the dealership (had an extended warranty) and they just made an adjustment. No problems since!

Driver door will not open from inside or outside


You're probably going to have to remove the interior door panel to get inside the door. It's not easy to do with the door open, much lees when you can't open it. You may have to remove the seat to get access to all of the screws and fasteners.

I can't open the gas tank panel on a Dodge Charger


There is a fuel filler door release switch on the driver's side door in the map pocket. The fuel filler door will pop open when the switch is pressed. It is closed manually.

If this system is malfunctioning, a manual release is located in the trunk. Remove the access cover which is located on the left-side inner trim panel and pull the release cable. The fuel filler door will pop open.

Most vehicles that have a power release, also have a manual release. Check inside the vehicle, around the location of the outside filler door. You might have a removable panel, that will reveal the fuel door release cable.

Can't put gas into my 2010 subaru forester


Having same issue with my 2010 subaru - seems common although the dealer refuses to admit it. P0453 CEL code indicates a problem with the EVAP - this came on a few days before I was no longer able to refuel. THey say I need a new Fuel Tank Pressure sensor. Essentially the fuel tank valve is closed, when it should be open when the ignition is off. Wating 4 days for the part, hopefully thats what it is. WHat ended up fixing your problem Tom?

Gas tank lid will not open when switch is pushed.


Open trunk and pull cable in left rear side trunk panel. This is an emergency release for the fuel door. You may have to pull gently out on fuel door while tugging at release cable several times. When the door opens oil latch solenoid tip and bend tab on door latch about 2mm towards hinge.
The fuel door is flimsy and tends to get bent. Once it is bent it prevents the latch solenoid tip from releasing the door latch.

Gas flap won't open on my 2003 subaru forester


Hi,

You may have pulled too hard and broken the link to the fuel tank. It is a wire. You will have to get it replaced or fixed.

Where is switch located to open the fuel door?


Hi Midwin4U,

I had the same question when I got my 94' 850 Turbo wagon. I kept wondering where the fuel door release was. To my surprise there was not one, you simply must have the entire "CAR" (not just the drivers door) unlocked. Use the key FOB. After that, go to the fuel door outside the vehicle and push in on it to pop it open. Hopefully you have not run out of gas yet.
