Someone do me a favor and check to see if the gas door actuator makes a distinct and wierd sound when the vehicle is unlocked. Mine just started doing it, but it is still functional.

Dookie, are you hearing the strange sound when you're inside the vehicle or outside? I just want to try and duplicate it under the same conditions.

Its the lock for the gas door. It unlocks when the drivers door is unlocked on the first press of the keyfob.

I know there's a lock there, but it recently started making a sound that sounded like the motor was straining...

It's best to hear the sound when standing next to the door.

Yes mine just started the noise last week-- I have about 4000 miles now. It's very loud when you unlock the door (sound is from gas door actuator area), but the gas door lock/ unlock mechanism still seems to be working normally??

Mine is working fine as well. Just makes that darn noise. I'm gonna stop by the dealer one night and see what they say--I just have to get off of work in time.

I listened by the gas door tonight as I unlocked the car, and the sound is loud, but its the same since the car was new. I don't think its anything to worry about.
