I once did this and in the manual it says that even after replacing the cap the light may stay on for up to 24 hours i think mine stayed on for about 2 hours and then went away just make sure the gas cap is on right and if it is it should be fine in a little bit

Gas cap indicaytor light came on. Changed cap and made sure it was tight but indicator light still comes on


The gas cap light is a generic light that indicates an emission problem. Usually a vacuum/pressure leak within the system. The gas cap is usually the first thing to check, however may not be the problem. There are numerous sensors and lines that control the vacuum/pressure/ of the fuel vapors and one of these is loose/disconnected/defective causing this light to come on. I would recommend inspecting hoses under the hood for any that may be loose/disconnected. You may also require a scan test to view sensor data to isolate the source of the light

I have a 2006 Saturn Relay with just over 70k miles. The "check gas cap" came up on screen after a few days the check engine light came on. was at a friend's who has a code reader and he...


The P0455 code indicates a leak in the evaporative gas system.

A loose, improprely seated, or defective gas cap will set the code in the computer.

Insure the gas cap is on and working as it should most caps gives a ratcheting clicking sound when seated. Inspect the cap for any damage and if found replace it.

If in doubt replace the gas cap.

Check engine light comes on in a 07 sebring when the gas cap is removed and the engine is started there is no change in the indicator.


this is normal, you should not have engine running when re-fueling, fuel gauge moves very slowly if key is on while fueling, turn key off and then on and should read proper level.

Check engine light came on. Code P1456.


Did you change the gas cap with a Honda gas cap? Tighten it at least three clicks?
Also, Honda recommends that you never top off the tank when getting gas (only go to the click-off of the pump; otherwise you can get back flow into the system that will cause the code).
Tightening or replacing the cap will not immediately cause the light to go off; it can take up to three days of driving for the light to reset.
To check if your readiness codes (emission system) are set, turn the ignition to ON (II), without starting the engine. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp will come on for 20 seconds. If it then goes off, the readiness codes are set. If it blinks 5 times, the readiness codes are not set.
You can, of course, try resetting your engine light to see if it will come back on (which it probably will). I believe the procedure is:
Turn off the engine.
Press and hold the Select/Reset knob (odometer) in the instrument panel, then turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Hold the knob for approximately ten seconds until the indicator resets.

Hope this helps you.

I have a 2006 grand prix and the check gas cap is on. Why?


Sometimes It will set a Code and After its Corrected the Light Needs to Be Manualy Reset By DISCONNECTING the POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL for 30-60 SECONDS AND THIS WILL RESET THE LIGHT.

Low Fuel Panel Indicator On


I know if your gas cap is leaking the low fuel light will come on but I never heard of the gas guage showing empty unless you have a float problem. The float is in the tank.
