Default just bought a gto, already first issue

I just bought a 32k miles 05 gto m6, i did a fair amount of research on gto's before deciding to buy one. I planned to upgrade the suspension with any car i would buy so thats was not a problem. I read up on most of the negatives about the car, the car i bought fortunately seems to be in good shape besides the front bumper clips broken, i have a gap. But i wasnt expecting my gas door to not open on my very first fill up lol. Is this a common problem and if so whats the fix, thanks

Hope I don't get struck by lightning.
32k is like a new car. Haven't heard of this problem, I have owned my 05 since new. Maybe it is in a bind. Get someone to push the button while you put a little pressure on the cover. Maybe it will pop open. Can you hear it activating?

I can hear the solenoid when i press the button, and we tried to push the door while someone pressed the button, no luck. I ended up just pulling on the cable through the trunk, going to take apart and lube it see if that helps any.

It's a linear actuator and should sound like the trunk release when you push the button, if it is working correctly.

The actuator is behind the right rear door panel.

The 05/06 actuators are also different from the 04 actuators, in case you need to replace.

Sometimes temps play a part.. Mine originally worked best when warm and not always when cold. Replacement fixed it for my car and then had the same issue a few years later.

Default 2nd issue came up

So i encountered my 2nd issue, code p2135 and 2176. I know these are related to the tps and the pedal sensor. Kinda bums me out since i was expecting to have a trouble free daily driver for alot longer then a few weeks. Either way i took the car back to where i bought it since its still under warranty and they replaced the battery and clutch. What would the clutch have to do with either code. Problem is they replaced the clutch without my permission and now want to charge me half the cost. What if anything does the clutch have to do with these codes, im thinking they just replaced parts while not diagnosing the original problem.

The clutch has nothing to do with the codes: The throttle position (TP) sensors 1 and 2 are located within the throttle body assembly. The TP sensors share a common 5-volt reference circuit and a common low reference circuit. The 5-volt reference circuit is also shared with the accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor 2. The 5-volt reference voltage is supplied on 2 separate engine control module (ECM) terminals, but the terminals are connected internally to the same voltage supply. Each TP sensor has an individual signal circuit, which provides the ECM with a signal voltage proportional to throttle the plate movement. When the throttle plate is in the closed position, the TP sensor 1 signal voltage is near the low reference and increases as the throttle plate is opened. The TP sensor 2 signal voltage at closed throttle is near the 5-volt reference and decreases as the throttle plate is opened. If the ECM detects that the TP sensors are not within a predicted value from each other, DTC P2135 sets.

I think you are getting "clutched"
