Question about 2000 Volvo S80
Posted by Anonymous on
In the 2000, when the doors are unlocked with the remote, the fuel door is also unlocked. If not, check the fuse under the dash behind glove box

SOURCE: fuel door does not open
I can't promise that this will apply to your car, but in my Audi, there is a manual release cable in the trunk, and your car may have one too. Go into the trunk, pull back the trunk lining on the side where the gas filler door is and look for a pull cord. Often the European cars have this feature since their gas doors are unlatched electronically, and this serves as a backup in case the electronic release fails. Take a look and see if you have this feature - I'd almost be surprised if you don't.

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.
