My check engine light is on and it's telling me to

I have a 2000 Bonneville, My check engine light is on and it's telling me to check my gas cap. I have removed the gas cap and even made sure it was tight but the light warning is still there. Now my car won't start, it will turn over but refuses to start. I have tried everything, we even replaced the battery. PLEASE help!!!!!!

    Yes there is gas in it. There is 90,000 miles on it. It acts like it wants to start but it just wont. Someone told me that maybe it's a vapor lock?? If so, how do I fix that?? It will start fine in the morning but if I shut it off, then it won't start the rest of the day!

Hi, my 01 Bonneville SSEI keeps saying check gas cap, then the check engine light comes on, I have replaced the gas cap and that did'nt fix it. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Hello: You need to find out if there are any codes in the engine control module. Go to a parts store ie: Auto Zone, Advance Auto and have the codes read, they normally don' charge. If the code is for the Evap system have them clear the code and see if it comes back.

Engine check light comes on and stays on for awhile then goes off. Dometimes when I fill the gas tank the check engine light comes on. is something to do with the gas cap or the instrument lights.


IF IT COME ON EVERY TIME YOU GET GAS.GAS CAP HAS BAD SEAL IT MORE LIKELY YOUR PROBLEM BUT LET AUTO ZONE SCAN IT FREE TO SEE WHAT TROUBLE CODE YOU ARE GETTING.

I have a 2001 Bonneville Service engine light


Hi:
not many codes will turn the light on and off, but the only way to know for sure is to get your codes scanned . Most auto parts stores will do this for free. THey will tell you what codes have tripped, even if the light isn't on any more. THis way you can have an idea as to what caused your light. Often it is a cylinder misfire or something similar.

What is causing a P0442 Engine Code? Is it possibly a leak at the gas cap?


More than likely it is your gas cap. Make sure that you have it on tightly. If you do and are still getting the code. I would suggest changing out your cap and tha should get you taken care of. Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

do you fill the gas tank with the key on?

Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour an then reconnect and drive for 10 miles. It may run rough for this period. This will clear codes from memory.

Check engine light remains ON


You need to go somewhere that can read the code from your computer that will tell you the problem. Some auto parts stores have this ability such as auto zone and others.
