I tried to gas up my 2005 Civic but the door won't open. I pressed the lever at the gas station and felt the click like normal, but the fuel door never opened. I tried plying the door open with a credit card while my friend is pressing the lever but no good. The latch doesn't seem to give. But now when I press the level nothing happens, I hear or feel the normal "click". Damn, is there a emergency release for the fuel door on a civic? I checked inside the trunk but did not find anything. Help, I really low on gas too.
same happened to me, it must be a faulty thing cuz i know it has happened to alot, and there is always that stupid ad for the fix lol so it must be bad. I had to bring it in 4 times before the finally fixed it properly, make sure you request they replace the WHOLE SYSTEM because everytime they gave it back within a few fills up it screwed up again. If you havnt figured it out, reach in on the side of the gas cap behind the trunk carpeting and twist the **** at the end of the wire until it comes out, much like you switch a headligh bulb, it will open.
the problem with fixing the whole system is, youre back to the beginning and its only a matter of time before the same thing happens. they dont have a new stronger cable, its the same spec as the one you had before.
