If you lock the car with the gas tank door open, say from the remote, the gas door won't close. Solution: unlock from remote.

Look in the trunk

Maybe the manual release cable got caught in the open position

check the rubber gasket

My door behaved in the same manor; wouldn't close and I thought the door was broken. Turned out that the rubber gasket was just funky. Make sure the gasket is not bent out of shape ort in the way somehow.
