360 Fuel Cap

Took my new to me Ferrari for its 1st ride. Stopped to get some gas but could not get the lid open. The trunk and engine compartment opened with no problems. I tried to open it with both the engine running and stopped. No luck so I used the pull cable in the engine compartment to open it. Any ideas? Burnt fuse?

The key has to be on or the engine running for the switch to operate the cap release.

Andrew- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Often the gas lid microswitch is slightly out of alignment, but the cockpit switch could also be bad. Do not believe the 360 had a rubber gas drip paint protector, which can cause problems on the V12s. A diagnostic for the cockpit switch would be to swap switches with the hatch cover and see what you get.

Your tech should be able to quickly diagnose and fix the problem.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
