Check inside the trunk on the side of the fuel door. Most manufacturers make an emergency release handle for just such situations. It may be behind the trunk liner but should be on the same side of the vehicle as the door is.

SOURCE: I have a latch on

Hello Debra,
I have seen cases in which the fuel door gets slightly bent and then the release does not release properly. You might be able to get away with having one person pull on the latch on the floor while another taps the gas door with their fist. Tap, do not excessively hit it with anything because it could cause damage to the paint or bend the gas door more. Once the gas door is open you will be able to see where or how it was stuck. Lots of times you can lightly pull up or push down to bend it to become aligned.

If that does not work your only other option would be to either pry the door open which can cause damage or take it to the mechanic. Sometimes there is a emergency release on specific cars for the gas door. (dont believe Hyundai has one on there car)

Good luck

Open gas door


Check owners book for emergency fuel door operation. There should be a wat to get it open even if the cable is broken. If it's frozen. Go outside with a hair dryer to un-thaw it.

Hyundai error report P0441 when check engine light comes on. Is this something covered under warranty at dealer, or should I have an independent mechanic look at it? Also, door latch that opens the gas...


yes this is a warranty item as it relates to the emission purge system ( pressure test for gas tank ). but before you go make sure your gas cap is tight (3 clicks) sometimes after getting fuel a loose gas cap will trip the purge solenoid valve to think there is a leak.

How can I loosen the lever for the gas tank to open? I have tried spraying it with WD40 (both the lever and the switch in the gas cap) but it still seems hard to pull and it won't open the door to the gas...


I have a 2007 Hyudai Santa Fe and had the same problem this morning. I wasn't sure what to do and couldn't find any solutions mentioning this, so I thought I would.

My tank wasn't frozen or anything and the cable tension seemed fine. If you go to the trunk there should be an access panel on the left side wall behind the tank (has a picture of a fuel pump on it), open this up and you will see an emergency fuel tank pull cord which will open the tank. Once I opened mine, I found that the little cord that holds the gas cap on was jammed in the door hinge. I tested it a few times with the "normal" release on the driver side door and it works fine now.

MY LATCH INSIDE MY HYUNDAI WON'T OPEN MY GAS TANK


My '03 has had the same problem. It's usually due to an obstruction on the fuel door itself. You'll need 2 people to fix it. The first person pulls the fuel door release lever and holds it in the up position. The second person taps on the fuel door until it pops open. If it doesn't open, then get a flat-head screw driver and *gently* pry it open.

If it still won't open, then maybe you have a broken fuel door release cable.
