On some vehicles, You have to wait until ALL diagnostic lights go out before you put the vehicle in gear, or the light will stay on. It then takes 5 or 6 normal startups to clear the error.

Todays cars have a system that contains fuel vapors so they don't escape into the air. If system is open, it triggers a code. It is not considered a "malfunction" and does not require service unless a hose in the system etc is found to be broken. Generally closing the fuel cap properly eliminates the problem. At worst, the cap sometimes must be replaced if the seal is bad (they likely checked this)

Check Engine Light won't go off


If you have an Advance Auto Parts store where ever you are, they will read the code and tell you exactly what to code is and what it means. Any mechanic who "guesses" isn't a mechanic at all - he's a thief. Emissions leak can be any number of things, but not the gas cap!

What does an orange engine outline light on the


It can mean many things. Problem is, its always stupid stuff like exhaust leak, fuel cap, o2 sensor etc. As a 26 yr Dodge mechanic, its a way for people to keep bring in thier car to keep dealershiips in business for service calls. As long as the car runs fine, dont waste your money on getting codes read or someone ripping you off on replacing parts. Another light will come on if something major is wrong. Such as check engine, oil, airbag, ABS brake lights. If ya just want to be sure (and waste money) goto a small garage and have the code read for $40 and post your codes and ask someone what it really means, thats if ya dont trust your mechanic. A dealer charges $75 and up. As a final note: talk to your friends, family, and neighbors for a trustworth non-dealer mechanic. It will save ya tons of cash in the long run.

see if you can find a mechanic with a smoke machine you hook it to one of the hoses and the smoke will come out the leak. lt could be loose hose clamp , broken plastic clamp, dry rotted hose ect , the gas gap is a item that can cause the light to come on always make sure the cap is on and tight. do the smoke see if it will find the leak most shops have one. it is what its for.

Dodge Caravan 2003 airbag and engine light


Sounds like the HVAC control head needs to be recalibrated. The procedure is fairly easy, Heres how its done:

CALIBRATION/DIAGNOSTICS TEST ENTRY
TO INITIATE TESTS:
Set Blower motor ON HIGH
Set Mode position to Panel
Set Temperature to Cold (Both slide pots if equipped)
Depress WASH and REAR WIPER button simultaneously for 5 Seconds (Until all LED's light)
RESULTS:
All LED's will turn on for 5 Seconds
Calibration Test is running when REAR WIPER and INTERMITTENT are alternately flashing. Cooldown test is running if A/C and RECIRC are alternately flashing.
Acceptable results is REAR WIPER LED is the only LED flashing. Push Rear Wiper to exit.
After all tests have passed, Calibration Diagnostics and Cooldown can be run separately.

After that the lights should go out and everything should work properly as long as everything is in proper working order.

Good Luck
