IF it will not open by the cable or electric switch it may be because the opening spring in the hinge of the door is broken and not moving the door open. Test this by having someone operate the release mechanism and manually opening the door.

1999 cadi fuel dor will not open


Hello,

when you pull the fuel door from inside, there is a hook that releases that makes the fuel door opens. Its is possible that the hook is not releasing, that's why the door won't open.

At this point, you will have to manually open the fuel door with a flat screw driver. Ask someone to put the fuel door control from inside the car, while you deep a flat screw driver to release/free the door.

This should open the fuel door. After the fuel door is opened, you can check the hook and see why its not responding.

Good luck.

My 04 Honda Civic fuel door will not open. Can


You can get to the latch through the trunk. In the trunk, pull the liner away from the area adjacent to the fuel door. You'll see a black cable that goes to the fuel door latch behind a metal frame. Reach in and turn the latch mount 90 degrees to release it from the fuel door frame. Your fuel door will now be open. You will need to repair or replace the cable, but at least you'll be able to fuel up for now.

Can't open the fuel door. Need to replace fuel


Check out your trunk. Many times there is an auxillary pull cable to open the gas door in the trunk.

Fuel door on my 1993 toyota camry won't open when I pull the leve


Get someone to help you. Have them pull up on the handle, whilst you pry open the door with a credit card, or something thin and plastic. Pull open the fuel door. Look to see if there is a bent piece of metal above the hinge. This is the "spring" that pops the fuel door open. If it is not there, it has broken, and needs to be replaced. About 3 dollars at a Toyota Dealer.

Fuel door won't open


ok check the sliding door on the side the fuel door is on. there is a safety mech. there the door needs to be closed all the way. if its not you can't open the fuel door. so slam that door then find out where and how it keeps the fuel door from opening. because if you open the door with the fuel door open it may damage fuel door
