Hello, welcome to Just Answer/Pearl. My name is Mike, I will
do my very best to assist you with your question today.

Double check that you are not trying to open the fuel door with the doors locked because it will not open if they are locked.Go to the fuel door and directly on the other side there is a panel and inside the panel you will see the red pull handle to open the door.
