SOURCE: Had evaporator coil replaced.

Your dash was taken apart to replace the coil. It is possible a connector was loosened during the job. If you can get to any of the parts that are intermittent, maybe you can trace their wires and see if there are any loose connectors along the way.

I have a light on the dashboard do not know what it is? It looks like a screw of some sort that is going into something when you start your vehicle and all of the lights go on it is right beside the check...


The light you see on your dashboard next to the "check engine" light is telling you that you need to check your gas cap. This light will illuminate when the gas cap is not properly installed. If you unscrew the gas cap as though you were going to fill up your van; and then tightly screw it back on, but the light stays on, then the sensor that tells the computer that the gas cap isn't screwed on properly is at fault.

You can also refer to page 11 of your owner's guide that came with this vehicle.

Gas Cap Error with Check Engine light


By "Replace the gas cap", do you mean put it back on, or buy another one? If you fuel these trucks with the engine running, or don't tighten the gas cap, the light will come on. It will also come on when the seal in your gas cap goes bad. I have had to replace the gas cap on my jeep and dodge already. It fixed the problem both times.

Light on my dashboard


ford taurus's are well known for this. the seal on the gas cap goes bad. before you replace the gas cap make sure when you close the gas cap you are turning it at least 5 clicks. if light stays on get a new gas cap. they are easy to install all you need to do is remove the gas cap.remove the gas cap strap. put ******** the new cap, close cap and turn 5 clicks. not clicking 5 time can set a p400 or p401 evap code causing the check enging /ses light to come on.
