unable to open door to gas inlet

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Bailey, Joan and Dan, May 29, 2006.

  1. Twice I have stopped my car needing to fill up and the disengage button
    inside my S80 will not release the door to allow me to fill up. Any ideas?
    I was about to jimmy open the gas inlet door when I tried one last time, and
    the door opened. What can I do if it will not open in the future?

  2. Most cars have an emergency release inside the trunk. Check you owners
    manual. It is a wire that you pull. I sounds like you need to get the
    cable replaced or lubricated or that the release itself needs to be
    replaced or lubricated.

    What year S80? My '01 unlocks when the doors unlock and remains unlocked
    for a period of time after the doors are locked before re-locking itself. (I
    guess to give you time to fill the tank if you are in a risky neighborhood?)
