Question about 2007 Suzuki XL-7
The tighten gas cap message came on and right after the check engine light came on. vehicle is runing fine.
There is a DTC error stored, in the ECU. (scan tools show this)
there is a car puter, error, message that really means
the gas tank is not holding air pressure.."EVAP sys"
and 99% of the time, that is "a loose gas cap"
it can take many driving cycle to clear this code.
or 1second with any scan tool, even a $30 tool.

I hate tire pressure monitors, in this case it sounds like you have a bad one. if you take it to the dealer they will be able to tell you which one is bad.

maybe the sensor is faulty, only having 17k miles on it i'm guessing that is what it is, get it looked at or changed

I had a similar problem with a 2008 model. It was the wiring directly under the gas tank under the vehicle. It was causing multiple lights to come on at different times. Had it not been for my looking myself we would not have found it. The dealer repaired it by wrapping it in electrical tape!! That lasted a few days. They re-did it and it lasted a few months. Now it has happened again. The first dealer said "animals" must have chewed the wires. I contacted a different suzuki service dealer this time, only giving them the basics of the problem, only to have him tell me that they have problems with "animals" chewing the wires on these vehicles--almost as if he had been coached. Be very careful. The wire that control the fuel guage is in the bundle. If it breaks the vehicle will not start.
