Go to auto Zone, tell them your problem and ask them if you can use their (new) gas cap (just for a minute) to see if that fixes the problem and if it does, buy the cap.

2004 Malibu panel shows check gas cap


Check for applicable trouble codes, see if anything related to evap system? Your emissions system probably pulls a small vacuum on the gas tank and evap system to check for leaks, If it doesn't pass the test, you will get an evap code or gas cap lite? The place that replaced exhaust system can they check for trouble codes? Anything?
To check for codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd 2 code reader.
I don't know if exhaust repair caused a problem or just coincidence?

Gas cap light evap code


What vehicle is it? (year, make, model, engine?) There are a lot of vacuum lines associated with the evap system on most vehicles. It could be as simple as a vacuum line cracked, broken or disconnected.

Check engine light and check gas cap


First, you have to have the trouble codes cleared from the computer memory to make the warning lights go off.
And the problem may be a leak in the gas tank venting system instead of the gas cap. The gas cap is the most often cause, but not always. You may have to get a shop to check for leaks.

Why is "check fuel cap" warning showing on my 2006 Pilot when the cap is secure?


Hi there:
If the gas cap wasn't on properly then the change in pressure would set off a sensor. Put the cap on right or replace it and if the check engine goes away after a few days that was your problem.



You replaced the cap and it will take quite a few driving cycles for the light to go off if that was the culprit. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and that might reset the light.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2009 crv check fuel cap


Go to the parts store where you bought the cap. Sometimes the code clears on it's own and sometimes you need to have it reset. If this is not an option disconnect the negative battery cable for a minute. Just as a warning, if you disconnect the battery you will have to reprogram most all of your electronics.

Yellow warning light that says check is on What does it want? In manual it says take to dealer


Take it to a Pep boys if you don"t have a code reader.
They will check out the computer code warning you are getting right noe.
The cost will be about $40 or 50 bucks.
The dealer will charge you three times that much,plus Pep boys will give you a up front free estimate if you need any repairs.
Bet it's the gas cap though.
Try tightening your gas cap and driving the car around far a hundred miles or so.
remember never put gas or loosen the gas cap when the engine is on.
The computer will pick up the venting like it would a leak,thus sending a warning code to the computer.

Check fuel cap is on,i have an aftermarket locking gas cap


The stock cap was designed to complete a circuit to put out the light when it was properly in place. The replacement cap apparently is built without the needed configuration to satisfy the system.
