2021 K5 EX, love the car! However over the last few weeks, I will stop for fuel and the door won’t open to get to the gas cap. Anyone else have this issue? Is there a secondary access?

Hi, there is a TSB that addresses this, but not easy to open. Make sure your car is unlocked, when you're trying to open the fuel door, it locks with the doors.

I saw that on some optima’s.. that didn’t help. I opened and closed the door repeatedly, no luck.

I had this issue as well, once. My doors were unlocked but might have something to do with keeping it in accessory vs off when you’re fueling. I had to open the driver door for the fuel door to open.

The next time I got gas, I didn’t have this problem. I turned off the car (went into accessory mode) and unlocked the doors and all went well. So it’s really confusing.

When you unlock your door from the handle button, it will unlock the gas door simultaneously.

I really ran into this in Oregon because we are one of the few states without self-serve gas so unless I open the driver door (aka unlock) the gas latch won’t open

Still happening sporadically. Kia dealer tells me the K5 is the only model without a manual override. They have to take off the rear quarter panel to open the fuel door. Pathetic!
