Since they are both not working I suspect a problem at the lever. Does yours have 2 seprate levers or 1 lever for both functions? Try taking the plastic cover off and see if you can see a problem like something broken or maybe something has gotten inthere and jamed the mechanism.

Check your owners manual. I believe there should be a manual release for the gas door inside the fender between the gas door and the rear of the car. I expect there is a trunk release inside the trunk near the latch. You should be able to fold down the back seat to get in the trunk.

thanks, i took off the cover and saw the cable had broken, didn't see manual release so had to get from the trunk removing the carpet covers, at least i can fill it up, guess i need professional help to put in a new cable, looks like quite a job, i appreciate your speedy help.
