make sure that the gas cap have a rubber gasket in it if it has accidentaly dropped off while you removed to fill the tnk it will not seal properly and create a vacum leak causing the ecm to turn on the light.
or did you have an accident or did you run over any thing that could have damaged the vapor canister at the bottom of the vehicle and if this is the case you will see the light on because a damaged canister can cause a vacum leak

sometimes the radiator is just too plugged to respond to flushing. (happens a lot with a marginal radiator because when flushing, the solvent simply goes around the plugged area, and cannot build up enough force to break it free). From what you have written, this may be the case. Is the electric fan coming on and off at the right times? if not this also can give you similar problems. You have done the right things but may not have gotten the desired result. Hope this info helps you a bit.

It could be the door that should be shuting off the heater core area is not shuting.The door works with engine vaccuum.The vac. comes from the intake manifold. With your car being a few years old, the heat from the engine may have caused the vac. hose to dry out and crack or become disconnected. With the engine cold and off, look under the hood. A small size vaccuum hose should be connected to the intake manifold and run inside the cabin area. This is one thing you can check. I hope this helps you.
