Question about 2008 Jeep Patriot
Check engine light and gascap light are on. Ive replaced the gascap and reset the code and they both came back on.

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...

I would have it scanned by an auto parts store, to see what the code says, then get a service manual, cheap ones are at promanuals.net

I had the same problem with my 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade. I shared with the Jeep service tech what I found on the internet regarding this problem. I was having the gas cap sensor to display and soon after other sensors were lighting and dinging and some times dinging without any indicator and vice versa. the service tech said he was not aware of any such complaints and recommended a diagnostic which found no trouble codes and recommended to change to the gas cap. I did so and no sooner than paying almost $100 for the service and returning home the same thing started happening again. I returned my vehicle and they called the Chrysler/Jeep service tech who obviously was aware of these complaints [Service Bulletin #14-001-06] and recommended the following: A complete system reboot. Disconnect the battery cables and short together for 15 seconds. If message returns then the problem may be with cluster. I have not had any dinging or gas-cap sensor display since this was done.

I would start with the gas cap replacement and see if the issue resolves itself. If you do have a problem with the EVAP (canister) system, it may require tools the average person does not have to help diagnose and correct/repair.

If the cap is good and the venting system is working properly the code should re-set itself in about twenty miles of driving.
