So the last few days my charge door has not been staying fully closed setting off the dash warning no matter how hard I push it in. The thing clicks but the door slowly comes ajar.

Any ideas or suggestions?

If I remember correctly, there is a solenoid driven pin that sits in a hole to keep the door closed. Check for dirt in the hole or maybe a bent pin. Or the solenoid may be going bad. If nothing is bent or broken I would try some dry silicone lube around the pin.

If you can't find the problem, it might be covered by the Voltec warranty.

The OP owns a 2014, they don't have the powered charge door.

Thanks for all the help. Turns out the little rubber boot was not fully seated on the plunger so when the door was closed, the boot was pushing it slightly ajar.

Seated the boot and now no problems. I love an easy fix.
