Hi. Have you tried to have someone try and pry the door open while you push the button? Also there should be a fuel door release cable located on the inside of the vehicle, behind where the gas door is, for just this instance. If you have the owners manual it should show you exactly where. Let me know how this works out for you. Thanks.
