    My central locking quit which includes gas filler door. All fuses are
    good in both boxes. Any ideas on what may be cattiwompus here? I know
    there's a control unit for it, but I'm not sure about a relay. Until I
    fix it, I don't know how I'm supposed to gas 'er up. Help, help.

    The gas part is easy. You can open the gas filler door from the trunk.
    Just pull back the siding on the side of the gas filler door, and you'll
    see a metal rod with a loop on the end. Just pull that. You should be
    now be able to open the gas filler door.

    are you saying that the door locks do not function or is it just the fuel
    door lock that is not unlocking if it is just the fuel door there should be
    a release cable in the trunk near the tail light

    Interestingly neither my 98 V70 (bought new) or my 98 S70 (bought used)
    have an emergency release. You can reach in there with a hook and
    release the fuel door that way. I've put my own emergency release on
    both cars.

    Curious, my '99 S70 (bought used) has an emergency release. It looks
    v. similar to the emergency release on an '96 850 (bought new). And we've
    had to use them both.

    Interesting. I have a friend with a 99 V70 whose electric fuel door
    release failed, and his car didn't have a manual release either. That's
    what made me put the release in my cars. My dad's '94 850 has the
    manual release though.
