Make sure the gas cap is on tight.
Disconnect the battery for a couple mins, to turn off check light.
If it comes back,you need to check for codes,by hooking a code reader or scanner under the dash.
Most likely a bad gas cap. Do not replace without an Emissions Code for it

My check gas cap light is on but no check engine light came on


The check gas cap light was in response to complaints of the check engine light being on for loose/missing gas caps. So now when the PCM sees a large EVAP leak the first thing it does is illuminate the check gas cap light (on models equipped with the light). Since it doesn't know if the gas cap is on or not it can have other issues like a vent solenoid stuck open which the PCM would be unable to distinguish between that and the gas cap left off.

There will still be a trouble code in the PCM for the EVAP system.

Engine check light is on what i can i do


Most of the time Check engine light will come due to Gas and gas cap issues. If you ran out of gas and gas lost pressure it will bring the light on. Make sure to fill take with premium (91 octane) gas and make sure gas cap is closed completely. loose gas cap will cause the engine light to come on. If after doing this you still get the engine light warning, take to authorized mercedez deal for code check.

Service engine light stays on. Adjustment of gas


Hi:
The gas cap is usually a good suspect in this case, but to figure it out, you need to have your code scanned to figure out what is causing the light. Most auto parts stores will scan it for free, so give them a shot

The engine light came on, I took it to the dealer and they said it needed a new gas cap. I purchased a new gas cap but the light is still on 3 days later? I was wondering how long it could take for the...


The light needs to be turned off with a scanner. Try the store where you bought the gas cap and ask if they have a scanner. If not, try Advance Auto or Pep Boys. Alternatively, you can disconnect the battery negative cable or the computer fuse for several minutes, but this will cause the loss of radio and other engine settings that may need to be relearned by the car automatically after a few miles of driving.

Check engine light on


I had the same problem. I went to the kia dealer and they checked the code that caused the light to be on and found I had a leak in the gas cap. They replaced the gas cap and the problem went away. You night need to find out what made the check engine light go on in the first place.
