Hi there elston! It sounds like the cable that operates the gas door either broke or is jammed. If you go into the trunk and remove the panel on the left side. Once you do that you will be able to access the release mechanism for the gas cap door. From there you will be able to do two things, Manually open the door, and you will be able to trace the cable from there to see where the malfunction is. Look at the cable to see if you sind that it broke, came detatched or is bound up on something.

Good luck and let me know if you have anymore questions.

The gas cap won't pop open.. makes a noise.. i am almost out of gas


There is no other release. Take it to a mechanic or the dealer. Or else just force the door open to reach the cap. Is it just a door cover or the fuel cap itself?

Open the trunk and behind the trim cover near the gas door only on the inside there is a cable pull there also. the owners manual will show you where it is it you have it.

Gas cap door will not open when release latch is


You might try having a friend bump the gas cover with the heel of their hand while you **** briskly on the release. Have done this a couple of times and once opened, you can use a little lubricant on the exposed parts. Sometimes that is enough.

depending on how the car is set, the unlock may have to be depressed twice to unlock the passenger door. i'm guessing you have already tried this? if not give it a shot.

if that didn't fix it, then sit in the car and hit the unlock button twice and see if you hear the passenger door unlock/lock mechanism trying to unlock the door. if you can hear it trying to pop the lock, then it may be an issue with the cold. my '99 323 was this way in the cold. if you can't hear it trying to pop the lock, then the module in that door is bad.

also when was the last time BMW replaced the battery in that key?

good luck.
