"gascap" light on PT Cruiser

I have a 2009 PT Cruiser base model. A check engine light came on, it was a p0440 code so i bought a new gas cap and cleared the code. Now the engine light does not come on but "gascap" shows up in the spot where the mileage is displayed and since there is no longer a code showing i'm unsure of what i can do next short of bringing it to my Chrysler Dealership which charges $110.00/hr for labor.

It might take 2 or 3 gas fill-ups before the light goes off. Don't worry.

Gas cap light came in jeep patriot 2008


Start by rebooting the as explained regkyl.
If issue returns then get a new gascap and reboot again. The seal on your cap is maybe worn out.
If issue still return then you'll have no choice to go and have the sensor checked and hope the problem is not with the cluster...

Gas cap light is on in my 2009 dodge avenger


basically what you need to do is to check the oil gascap see if it has any type of dirt or anything under, if so just clean it off. the gascap should be on top of engine where it says OIL. or the gas cap could be rusted and may have to be replaced

Engine light on & gascap


The gascap light means you may not have the gas cap on tight, or it may be faulty. The check engine light means the computer has found a problem that will affect performance and-or emissions.
Such as a leaking gas cap.
If the gas cap is ok, you may need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with testing.

I have 2 problem codes for my 2003 pt cruiser 1) 9 and 2) p0440 what does this mean


Hi there:
DTC P0440 - Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction


This is caused by a vapor lean in the fuel system. A loose or not sealing gas cap can cause the problem.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Check engine code P0440


this is a evap code. easiest thing is going to check your gas cap and make sure its sealing properly. Or their is a hole or crack on one of the lines.

2006 pt cruiser, check engine light came on. Shortly after, gas cap light. Replaced gas cap and reset. Today bith lights came on again.


are you fueling car with key "on"? That will cause light to come on. Disconnect battery for 1 hour and this will reset "keep alive memory" and clear codes from memory. Drive car for 10 miles so computer can relearn engine parameters. It may run rough during this period.

Obd code p0440 for check engine light on 2000 Toyota Corolla


p0440 code means that the evap system has a leak. This could be caused by a bad or improperly installed gas cap. Either that or the purge solenoid has failed or the canister is plugged and not working properly.
