hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.

Take a good close look at the rubber strip between the windshield and the plastic shroud the wipers are mounted in. If it is not a tight seal on the passinger side water can run down and get the Pcm wet. When the Pcm gets just a little water on the connector it can cause the problems you describe. If it gets alot of water on it it can and fills the Pcm up, then you will have major problems. It will set error codes for everything and anything.
This is a defect in the design of the vans and the only way to fix it is to make sure that this rubber seal is tight against the glass (especially on the passinger side).
I had to have my Pcm replaced because of water (not a cheap fix) and the dealer did what Ford recommends. It filled with water again. After the third try I gave the dealer a piece of an inner tube from a wheel barrow tire and had them place it over the connector and seal it against the fire wall. Then I used aquarium sealant and glued the little rubber strip to the windshield.
I haven't had any more problems since.
The Pcm connector is probable the most critical part of the electrical system and they placed it in the worst possible place.
Ford knows of the problem but will do nothing to fix it.
Mine cost over $800 to fix, but believe it or not my insurance paid for part of it because it was water damage.

This relay is located behind the dashboard's lower cover. It consists of two individual relays. One is energized whenever the ignition is ON , thus supplying battery voltage to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This relay also supplies voltage to the fuel injectors, and power to the second relay. The second relay is energized for two seconds, when the engine is turned ON , to power the fuel pump.
