This will keep happening until the problem is fixxed, theres an evap system leak, the cap light comes on because most of the time its a cap ,but not yours, the system needs checking you may have a bad valve or broken vacuum line for the evap system, this system has lines running from gas tank to engine with valves and soleniods and it everything is not working or the system cant hold vacuum it will turn on the light, a smoke machine is need to test the system and find the leak, hope this is helpful.

Gas cap light came in jeep patriot 2008


Start by rebooting the as explained regkyl.
If issue returns then get a new gascap and reboot again. The seal on your cap is maybe worn out.
If issue still return then you'll have no choice to go and have the sensor checked and hope the problem is not with the cluster...

Where milage gage is it says gascap. Put new gascap on and it still shows up


Emissions trouble codes need a number of drive cycles completed in order for the code and/or indicator lights to extinguish. The drive cycles can involve several hundred miles of driving, a number of starts, a combination of low and high speed driving.
Most of these codes can be manually erased with a code scanner tool without the need to wait for the drive cycles to complete.

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.

Gascap light comes on every time I start the car.


You will need to get the code befoe anyone can begin to diagnose this, There are about 5 parts that can cause this problems. The gas cap is one of them. If anyone has been uner the hood just pryor to this happening its possible they left a vacuum hose off or maybe broke one.

If this car is really an 07 then this being an emission issue you are covered under warrenty. Take it to the dealer.

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.
