Default 97 SSEi fuel door switch location???

I just purchased a 97 SSEi and have been going through the car cleaning and repairing small little things. I have noticed that the fuel door has a harness attched and so it must have a switch somewhere inside the car. I'll be damned if I can find it!!! I think the glove box door has been replaced and maybe the box itself. Should the release switch be in there? Any help appreciated!!

P.*. I LOVE this car!! LOTS of room and LOTS of zoom.

There'* no switch in the car.. the lil latch is activated when you lock and unlock your doors.. try it next time.. stand outside and lock the doors usin your remote.. you'll notice now you can't open the fuel door.. and unlock the car doors.. you'll notice the fuel door can now open. I believe there is also a cable inside the trunk ( don't have my car to confirm ) that you can pull to manually disengage the lock )

Default THANKS!

Thanks for all the help. The door lock answer was right!! Different though. Just for reference, there was also a tab one could pull inside the trunk to manually unlock the fuel door should the solenoid go bad or something.
