The gas cap is either not on or improperly installed, remove the cap and reinstall it until it clicks when tightening. Read your owner's manual, the info is in there. If the light still stays on replace the gas cap.

What are the causes to look for once the engine check light comes on


something as simple as "Not Securely Fastening the GasCap" can turn on the check engine light. You have a fair amount of mileage on the vehicle (don't know what year make and model it is). Some vehicles may turn on the check engine or maintenance required light after a certain amount of mileage just to insure the systems are checked.
Your best bet is to have someone scan the fault code to determine what to do next - there are numerous issues that can turn on the Check Engine Light. A local Auto Parts Store will probably scan the codes for Free.

Gascap on mileage reading


I assume it is displaying gas cap on the odometer. This happens when the van sees a EVAP leak. It is small and is telling you to make sure the gas cap is tight. If it is you probably have a leak in the EVAP system. If it gets worse it will turn on the check engine light.

I took my Aspen07 to the shop and they replaced the gascap with a factory gascap, cleared the codes and the gascap message is still on as well as the check engine light. Any suggestions?


the check engine light is most likely evap system large leak which is what causes the gas cap light it probably needs a nvld pump or it has a leaking evap tube under th vehicle.

Fuel cap light keeps coming on and then the check engine light. This was repaired two weeks ago and light came on last night.


Hello, what did someone do to repair it? Here is what you need to do. Go to Autozone or Oreillys and get a free scan. If it still shows gascap then ask them to clear the onboard computer. With the engine off, tighten your gascap again.

Everytime you put on the gascap loosely, you will get this alarm and it will stay on 25-35 Startups or until you get the computer cleared.

However, if you eliminate the gascap there are other problems which you may have that require a special tool called a smoke machine. You have a leak in one of your pollution hoses for the fuel tank. Only the smoke machine can find a small leak like this. Once you find the leak it is a simple matter to fix.

You can call around to find a repair shop with the proper equipment. I hope you find my solution informative and feel well served.

There is a symbol that lights up on my dash in between the mileage and the gear readouts it looks like a tranie or a motor, but i do not have a manual for my car and so do not know what the symbol means


orange would mean service engine, like the old orange colored service engine soon lights that are computer or emissions related. red would mean oil or engine problem. it's probably a motor symbol so we can dismiss ABS or other red brake light.

How to shut off gascap light chrsler aspen check engine light goes off but because gascap light stays on check engine light returns. So how can i clear gascap light


You may have a faulty gas cap. If you are tightening the cap down securely the light will go off after the car is driven about 40 miles. I suggest installing a new gas cap which should cost about $15 at your local auto parts store. *** Please rate me on this answer.***

No mileage showing digital readout thanks


It is registering, but the light is burned out. You can probably use a flashlight on it and see a faint glow of numbers, but you just need a new bulb. Your radio is probably only half lit on the readout, too. Common problem with Pontiac sunfires. Dashbulbs. Cheap fix, but time consuming.

Gascap light comes on everytime i start up the car


I had this similar problem but gascap and engine light on. I changed out the gas cap cleared codes and both were back o. Went to the dealer he insisted it was the after market gascap changed in and cleared the codes. Before I even left the lot they were both back on. Finally they found the problem they had to change out some kind of pump and canister and it fixed the problem.
