    It’s electric, I think. Perhaps you should charge the car battery?

    Or if it hasn't been charged in 4 years, buy a new battery in the Boxing Day/January sales.

    Cheers, Ken

    I have bought new battery, but the fuel flap was the only thing that does not work.

    Instructions for these sort of backup systems are usually in the owners manual.

    or
    Fuse box in the boot

    To access the fusebox located under the left hand wing trim:

    1. Move aside the trim on the left-hand side.
    2. Move aside the electrical cables connecting to the fusebox
    3. Open the fusebox

    Any use?

    Try a UK Citroen forum if no luck at this end, I'd suggest. Good luck.

    Love the Xantia. Just push the flap (no locking mechanism, stays closed by the airstream) and undo the cap manually.

    Just remembered, I disabled the locking mechanism shortly after getting the car. No one steals petrol from cars these days. It is quicker to remove a numberplate, put it on your car, fill the tank up full and drive out of the service station. I have lost a numberplate from a BX. On the garage security camera, the thieves hopped out of the car, undid the numberplate and where back in the car in 22 seconds.
