Default MK4 Jetta fuel door will not open

Fuel door switch is good, if you switch it with the trunk switch, the trunk still opens up.

Fuel door actuator is good, put a hot battery to it and it moves.

No voltage at fuel door actuator plug.

No blown fuses, can not find a specific relay for the fuel door.

Any ideas, I am stumped.

No one? This is more a inconvenience than a necessity. But I like my cars to all work properly.

The fuse is a green 30 amp, you may have a bad switch.

There is no relay for that.

power from car to fuse-to switch-to actuator

I have some helpful videos on my website

look in the installation instructions


any other questions I'll try to help
