Quite a few things can cause the computer to turn on this light. Without the OBDII problem codes, it's anyones guess. However, there is one simple thing that can cause this and make you say "Oh for stupid" (or more colorful things...) Check the cap on your gas tank and make sure it's on correctly....... Dont ask me how i know this!!!!

SOURCE: 2003 Mercury Sable gas cap light stays on!

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

This is not really a big problem, it only alerts you that there might be an issue. Take the car for a scan which will reveal any issue at hand.

2001 Sebring 2.4 starts but will not stay running


Hi Ericiarson09.
Check your Crankshaft Position Sensor connector to make sure it is clean and tight. Also check the two screws that hold the sensor to the front of the motor to make sure they are snug and the screw holes are not damaged or broken. This would cause your issue and poor gas mileage. Hope this helps.

Engine light came on


Make sure your gas cap is tight, at least 5 clicks, sometimes a gas cap that doesn't seal tight will trigger the Check Engine Light. If the light stays on you will need to pull the Trouble Code from the ECM (Computer) using a OBD II scanner.
