    Default Fuel Tank Filler Door Lock

    My '09 G8 won't let me fill up! The door refuses to open. It started out being just one time and when I locked and unlocked the doors it released the actuator. But every time I went to fill up after that it got harder and harder to persuade it to open, until now it refuses to budge.

    Ok, I coaxed it to open again after about 20 trys at it. I cleaned it up a bit with a dust rag. And now it closes but does not lock. I suppose that is better than not being able to get gas when I need it. Does it sound like a faulty actuator or a sticky latch?

    Could you try to jumper the actuator to test?
