The SES light will come on with a missing or defective gas cap. Try getting a new gas cap and installing to fix the problem.

Otherwise, have the SES light scanned to see what other problem may exist.

Hope this helps.

Take it to your local mechanic to get an OBD code check. It should tell you the problem, and you can get an estimate on the fix unless you want to do it yourself. It could be a fuel filter issue.

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.

'service engine soon' light comes on one day, then is off the next--no pattern-- no intake or liquid leaks found by mechanics?? Also, 'low coolant' light comes on now and then, no leaks found; not even...


The low coolant light could be caused by trapped air in the cooling system. If the mechanic didn't doa diagnostic scan, that needs to be done. Even though the service eng. light didn't stay on continuously, there could be stored codes in the computer.

I doubt the two problems are connected. I would try a new gas cap and see what happens since it runs fine. The service engine soon light won't reset on it's own right away.

"Service enging soon" light stays on....


This could be a number of things causing this ...most common is that after you fill up the gas cap is not fully tightened...make sure it "clicks" 3 times while turning.The other common problem is that the gasket on the gas cap is old and thus does not seal the tank/fuel filler area...check with replacing the cap.If neither correct then you will need to bring to a service center or dealer to run a code check...maybe a bad O2 sensor or a code for the transmission.
