Re: Renault Kangoo - Various Queries
I just tested operation on my Kangoo. Sliding door locks instantly when removing fuel cap. Lock button becomes fully retracted and impossible for a passenger to pull up. This means your problem has probably nothing to do wit fuel cap interlock mechanism. I suspect poor contact on the 3 contact pins at front of sliding door. Clean these and see what happens.
Invest in a multimeter as well and teach yourself how to use it. Very handy for faultfinding.
