When I bought my 99 NB last Fall, the gas lid wouldn't even stay closed. It had to be held closed with velro to look flush with the body. I got sick of that so I went behind the panel in the trunk, per some instructions on this site. I played around with the cable a little bit and got it to work somewhat. It still doesn't open with the key fob or the button inside the car but it closes all the way, and I can open it by prying it up with my finger, AFTER pushing the button inside the car. I probably didn't do a comlete fix but I didn't want to spend the $, so I was happy with this semi fix, for now. Playing with the cable will probably be helpful for you since your cable works some time. :D
