If this cap was in fact the cause of the problem the car is designed to reset the CEL when a certain number of ignition cycles has been met without the original problem recurring. If it does not reset itself on its own then you'll need to look at the EVAP system for any leaks or bad parts. Common causes of that code are a bad EVAP solenoid, bad fiel cap seal, dry/rotted hoses, poor hose connections.

Go to an auto parts store and have them read the code(s) to tell you what the problem is. If there are no other problems, it is safe to drive there.

Likely a problem related to the pollution control equipment - catalytic converter, PCV valve, etc. Hard to tell without the codes.

Is your gas cap on tight? Often that is the problem. It may take a couple of drives and/or days to clear the Check Engine light after you have tightened the gas cap.

Good luck !!

2004 infiniti g35 check engine light just now came on..why


There are dozens of reasons why a "Check Engine" light could come on. Until you get the codes read, you can't begin to have a reason why. Go to your local auto parts place, most will read the codes for free.
Infinitis do have a trick, though. If the last time you filled the tank, the gas cap didn't get fully tightened, a day or so later, the Check Engine light comes on. Confirm the cap is tight, and if it wasn't, the light will go off tomorrow.

Gas cap indicaytor light came on. Changed cap and made sure it was tight but indicator light still comes on


The gas cap light is a generic light that indicates an emission problem. Usually a vacuum/pressure leak within the system. The gas cap is usually the first thing to check, however may not be the problem. There are numerous sensors and lines that control the vacuum/pressure/ of the fuel vapors and one of these is loose/disconnected/defective causing this light to come on. I would recommend inspecting hoses under the hood for any that may be loose/disconnected. You may also require a scan test to view sensor data to isolate the source of the light

2009 Mazda 5 check engine light after loose gas cap


If the code would have been due to the cap problem then the code will go away. Try resetting the code. Also try diagnosing again after disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it after a few minutes.

2000 honda accord ex with code p0505


For a 2000 Honda Accord LX, the check engine code P1456 simply means that your gas cap is off or isn't tight enough. It wont go off immediately. It make take up to a weak for the check engine light to turn off once the gas cap is tightened enough.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Engine light,


99% of the time, the gas cap wasn't tightened properly, or is leaking. Make sure you twist it tight and it clicks a few times. If the "Check Engine" light stays on after a few days, buy a new gas cap. Again it may take a few days to clear.

Check engine light on at 90500 miles 2003 toyota camry is this just a reminder light for scheduled maint.?


Your check engine light usually means there is an issue with your emissions control system. The last time mine came on, I found that my gas cap wasn't on tight enough. I turned it on tightly and the light went off after 30 miles or so. Start there.
If you've tightened the cap and the light is still on after 30 miles, you may have a bad gas cap OR maybe you just got some bad gas at your last fill-up. Try a few gallons of high-test and drive it a while. If nothing changes, a new gas cap is probably the next cheapest option. Good luck.
