I stopped by the gas station to fill my new JSW for only the second time and the fuel door won't open. I live in Vermont and am worried that the door has frozen shut. Any ideas?
Baffled and in need of gas soon.
Because of the snow storm it's possible it's frozen. Slowly pour windshield washing fluid around the edge. Use a hair dryer to melt the area around the edges. Or use lock deicing fluid, it used to be common before almost every car came with key fob to unlock.
I believe that if you have a 2010 the fuel door needs to be pushed in to open it. The 2009 uses a button solenoid.
I am also not able to open the fuel door. I have tried multiple times to unlock car from fob or from inside lock button, with or without pressure on the door. Any suggestions would be appreciated-help me to not go to dealer. ( I joined the forum because of this problem!) Thanks-John
The 2010+ have the press down on the door release. Your 2009 should have the button. Is there a manual open pull somewhere in the trunk area? Not sure since I don't have a sportwagen. chekc your owner's manual
