My 2010 Kia Sedona seems to think the gas tank door is open and won't allow my old school non-powered passenger side sliding door to open. Any advice on what can be done to allow this door to open again? Thanks.

There is a mechanical stop in the 'C' pillar, when the petrol/gas door is opened a wedge comes out and prevents the door from opening. The flap is electronicaly operated, but the wedge is connected by a cable to flap. the wedge mechanism is very simple and reliable, I have only seen dirty ones that fail. A good clean and lube is usually all it takes to fix
.
The only problem is some times the inner quater panel trim has to be removed to release the wedge to open the door to remove the wedge to clean the wedge mechanism
