Jim, the following video might be worth watching. There's no commentary but it seems the error code can be resolved by stripping down the door latch mechanism and giving it a good dose of contact cleaner:

EDIT: For the fuel cap error, is it a case that the fuel cap isn't locking? If so, then it might be another case of some lubrication being needed to resolve the situation. The following video shows how to remove it from a B8 A4, but the principle should be the same. Rather than remove it completely from the car in the video, on the back of the actuator is a small hole. Spray a liberal dose of contact cleaner in that and try locking/unlocking the car several times.
