You stated "key in and key out", I'm assuming that your car has a locking gas cap. If that's the case, turn the key to the right (clockwise), once the key stops, hold it in the far right position with your right hand, then grab the gas cap with your left hand and turn it clockwise. That should do it. Hope this helps. If I was able to FixYa, please rate my answer. Thanks.

A bad gas cap will cause the light to come on, of so replace the cap. The vent is not working if gas is coming back at you. Replace with new.

Gas cap indicator light stuck on; gas cap is on-checked it ten times. 2007 Nitro, about 40,000 miles

There are a number of things that the computer system will reset automaticly, but, it usually requires 2 drive cycles.

A drive cycle includes, accelerating, highway speed, local speed, stopping. If you have already done that, you may try to reset by removing the ground cable, ( black wire ), from the battery for a minute or so.

I hope this helps you.
