The spring in the door is probably weak. If you can find a piece of wood that is wedge shaped and push it into the seam of the gas door then press the release button it should pop open so you can inspect the spring. If you can bend the spring the opposite way then spray the hinge with WD40 it should work for quite a while

1998 mercedes benz s500 reasons for the fuel pump to malfunction?


#1 reason is running the car low on fuel, like 1/4 tank or lower, the next is running it out of gas completely. The reason for this causing failure is simple, the fuel pump is cooled and lubricated by the fuel it pumps and sits in.

I have a mercedes benz S500. My doors will not lock and I cannot open my gas tank door.They both went out at the same time. What could the problem be?


Usually a wire broke. Open the drivers door, look in the jam, at the front of the door, you will see a rubber boot between the door and the car. This is usually where the wire breaks. the boot pops off the car and door.
