Default Gas Cap Door Stuck

I bought a used 2003 Honda Accord V-6 in March 0f 2006. I went to the Gas station yesterday to fill up. I pressed the lever to open up the door to the Filler cap and it did not open. I repeated a couple of times with the same result. I had my wife press down on the lever, while I tried to open the door with a small key, No Luck. Any suggestions or am I at the mercy of the dealership?

Thanks,
Accord Owner

Pull the carpeting away from the side of the trunk so you can see where the cable goes. Maybe you can see what's disconnected & hook it back up? Maybe it's unhooked from the lever next to the seat?

JimBlake,
Thanks for the advice. I pulled back the carpet in the trunk and found the cable. I did not see anything in particular that was wrong, I recalled earlier when I pressed down on the lever to open the filler cap door it felt like the cable was pulled too far in, I think that was why the door did not open. I then decided to push the cable back toward the front of the car for more slack in the front. I then pressed down on the lever to open the door to the gasfiller cap , and it popped open. Whew, I thought I was going to have to go the dealer for this. Thanks Again
