Exclamation Fuel cap door...

Something I almost learned the hard way:

There is a locking mechanism on that fuel cap door which activates when the vehicle is locked.

I didn't know this and thought the vehicle gas cap was always click open/click close.

Thank goodness I did not put more force into trying to open that door!

But if you are standing next to it, with key start, and push it, it will open.

My LX is key start and the only way you can press and open the gas door is if the doors are unlocked just like what it says in the owner's manual.
