Turn off the check engine light off due to gas cap being off how best way


Yes the light will go back off. However it will take some time. The average vehicle will rerun the monitor checks every 10 key starts. The other thing you can do is disconnect the battery for a minute. But if no rush for an echeck then just be patient and it will go out.

Last year I had to change my gas cap on my car, I did that This year, I was putting gas in my car and forgot to turn off the engine, the next day my check engine light came on. I checked the gas cap,...


Well, a lot depends on what MODEL, YEAR, and ENGINE SIZE your vehicle is. There may be a Technical Service Bulletin that may lead us to a known problem with your vehicle, but we cannot check for this with the information we have.
Evaporative Emissions fault codes must be properly diagnosed. Not all EVAP LEAK codes are caused by loose gas caps. On most vehicles, there are service bay tests that can be performed to eliminate the possibility of a loose or leaking gas cap. However, the proper equipment and techniques must be used. As you have now learned, it does absolutely no good to clear fault codes without properly diagnosing and repairing the condition that caused the code.

1998 Cheverolet Lumina, ''service engine soon'' and hard gear shift


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.

Check engine light came on. Code P1456.


Did you change the gas cap with a Honda gas cap? Tighten it at least three clicks?
Also, Honda recommends that you never top off the tank when getting gas (only go to the click-off of the pump; otherwise you can get back flow into the system that will cause the code).
Tightening or replacing the cap will not immediately cause the light to go off; it can take up to three days of driving for the light to reset.
To check if your readiness codes (emission system) are set, turn the ignition to ON (II), without starting the engine. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp will come on for 20 seconds. If it then goes off, the readiness codes are set. If it blinks 5 times, the readiness codes are not set.
You can, of course, try resetting your engine light to see if it will come back on (which it probably will). I believe the procedure is:
Turn off the engine.
Press and hold the Select/Reset knob (odometer) in the instrument panel, then turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Hold the knob for approximately ten seconds until the indicator resets.

Hope this helps you.

Check engine light


Sorry your going to have to change the gas cap. You can try  spraying WD-40 to the rubber seal on the gas cap to get you some more months out of it, the seals get hard and don't seal any more. Good luck

2004 pontiac grand am service engine soon light


I have the same car and if the gas cap is loos for any reason the service engine light will come on so check that. If it is it will turn off in a few days after you tighten it.
