MY 2000 big problem. The gas door will not unlock with the doors. When I hit the locks, it makes a noise at the gas door but when you push on it, it's stuck. I've tried using the remote and unlocking with the key but it's still stuck.

Any ideas?

TIA!! :cheers:

Try the emergency release in the door frame (above the top hinge - way back in there).

Thanks!! I'll try it tonight. :cheers:

Be careful with the emergency release. The first time I pulled mine, it broke and my dealer had a heck of a time getting a replacement. Be gentle with it.

Be aware that you can get the gas door to lockup if you let the car stand inactive until the the system automatically shuts the battery down (that is about 7 days of inactivity). When this occcurs the fob does not work and you have to use the key to unlock the car. If you open the door with the key and start up, and then stop for gas, the gas door will still be locked.

To get the gas door unlocked you have to lock the car again by pressing the button on the key fob. When you unlock the car using the fob, the gas door is now open.

That does not sound like your problem but this little gas door quirk is a good thing to know.
