fuel door won't lock

plastic catcher not there,

thanks Loren and RFM.

btw my alarm beeps twice, I figured it the fuel door. Will it get back to normal mode once my fuel door locks or do I have to get it reset?

Usually 2 beeps means more than one fault or some other alarm problem.

If you get 1 beep after fixing the fuel door catch - then you have one more zone to fix.

If it turns out that the problem isn't the plastic part, but is the actuator....I have a spare that has a broken shaft that you can take off the one that doesnt' work and replace it.....I'd be willing to donate it to you just for the shipping if you need it.

I accidentally broke the plastic actuator shaft that slides into the hole...so I had to replace the whole unit. It doesn't sound right that there is any sort of sensor in that plastic hole that the shaft slides into....so I am wondering if the beep is being cause by the fact that the actuator isn't sliding forward when you lock the car.

Loren.....can you see any sort of electrical micro switch in the plastic part that would either activate or de-activate an alarm signal? I don't see any way....the only electircal impulse would come from the actuator itself going into the forward or locked position.

When you ran the PIWIS on my car and we didn't realize it didn't have that cheap plastic part...the only alarm we got was from the front trunk micro switch that erroneously triggered an alarm indicating that the front wasn't shut. That was a micro switch problem...not the gas cover actuator.
