Go to the sealership

First, make sure the valet switch in the glovebox is OFF. Next, fold down the rear seats to gain access to the trunk and pull the short cable at the trunk release to unlock the trunk. Next, pull back the stiff trunk carpeting away from where the fuel door is located. You may or may not see a similar short cable to release the fuel door. You need a new electronic module to fix this VERY common issue. Usually, the radio stops working also. Go to a dealer first, so you know which module it is and where it is located. Then check your local salvage yard or online for the part. :-)
