2001 Maxima gas door release wont work

My trunk release and gas cover release buttons are on the drivers door. The trunk release works fine but the gas door release does not. I cannot put gas in the vehicle. Any one have any clues?? Thx, Vinnie

Check behind the inner trunk liner, on the side where the gas door is located. Some cars have an emergency release hidden there. Don't know about yours, but it's a place to start.

Had the same thing happen on a prelude. The door was stuck, but the release still worked. If I held the release and pushed on the fuel door I could get it open. Lubed it up after that and it worked fine again.

Thank you very much. That was the problem. Door was stuck. I was able to work it free while someone else worked the release button. A two man job, but very simple.
