Re: Fuel door doesnt open
Well, happened to me again and my wife was with me. I stopped for gas and pushed the button, and nothing happened, no noise like a solenoid releasing, no fuel door opening, no nothing. My wife told me to wait while she pushed on the fuel door. I did, and then pushed the button, heard the noise and the fuel door opened. I asked her what exactly she did, and she showed me she pushed on the center of the fuel door. I said DON'T PUSH HARD it looks like it's flexing. Whew!!! The door looks ok, except that it looks somewhat recessed not flush with the body side panel. Of course I pushed the button again and it opened again. My problem would seem to me more of an alignment issue of some type that unless the door is pushed closed hard it doesn't allow the solenoid (or what ever the electric system is) it re-set so that it opens again. The outside temp today was about 50 degrees so I don't know if my problem has any issue related to temps. It had been raining (this is the Seattle area).
I sure would like to know exactly what is control this door - is it an electric solenoid?
