Would love to charge my Kona EV but the charging door/flap will not open. I have tried unlocking the doors multiple times, but nothing. Is there a manual release for the door/flap?
This worked for me thanks so much! Instead of the "rap" I just pushed on the hinge side with two thumbs. Et Voila!I've had this problem too - only started a month ago after 10-months ownership. Its in for a service next week, so in the meantime my solution is a sharp "rap" with my fist on the hinge side of the flap. It has released it every time so for.
Here is my sequence: lock car with fob; sharp rap on flap; unlock with fob. Et Voila! It opens normally.
Give it a try.
