2014 Fuel Lid opens by itself?!

Love that ingeniously "engineered" flimsy plastic fuel lid....

Now it opens unintentionally once in a while, maybe I'm not seeing clearly but almost certain that it was open 3 times already without me pushing the button...

Anybody else had that happen?

Re: 2014 Fuel Lid opens by itself?!

I have a 2011 JGC, and I am not sure if they changed the location of the button to open the fuel door for the 14MY (unlikely, but I have seen some odd things in my 20 years in the auto industry).

If they have not changed the position --- I can say that I have smacked the "fuel door open" button more than a hand full of times with my knee when entering the vehicle. I have also turned the light switch from "Auto" to "Off" when getting in the jeep. I do not think that there is a way for it to open on it's own, unless your vehicle is haunted by the ghost of Harold Hamm's long lost brother trying to get you to buy more gas... which I hope not to be the case!

It was open 3 times in a couple days, something not right (either me or this Jeep) ;-)
