I just bought a 2014 Fusion Energi Titanium, everything seemed okay until several days ago, I refueled it and after closing the fuel door, "Close the fuel door" sign appeared on the dash. Although, the door itself is actually closed and is working fine. At first I thought that it might be a fuel door spring problem (part number: DM5Z9928610A), but I dismantled it and there is nothing in there that could have been broken.
Maybe some of you guys have experienced the same problem. I checked some posts and when they have similar problem, mostly their fuel door either is not opening properly, or not closing. As I said, mine is working fine, the only problem is the sign, which causes Check Engine Light to illuminate and this light prevents car to start remotely with key. (as I know, being unable to use remote start when SES light is on is normal and I also know that when a fuel door is open during three driving cycles, the illuminated SES light is normal).
So, the problem is that, although the fuel door is closed, the car thinks that it is open, which causes all of my problems. I cannot take it to the dealer, because I live in the country of Georgia and I imported an used car from California. We have only one Ford dealer in Georgia and they hesitate to work with imported cars that they have not sold themselves. So, I would appreciate your advises.
