I had the same problem. I went to the kia dealer and they checked the code that caused the light to be on and found I had a leak in the gas cap. They replaced the gas cap and the problem went away. You night need to find out what made the check engine light go on in the first place.

First, you need to determine WHY the check engine light is on. It COULD be a faulty gas cap and if it is, be sure to replace with one EXACTLY like the one from the factory otherwise your check engine light will come on again.
Go to AutoZone (or other auto parts store) and ask to 'borrow' their code analyzer.
More details would be appreciated.

Engine light on & gascap

The gascap light means you may not have the gas cap on tight, or it may be faulty. The check engine light means the computer has found a problem that will affect performance and-or emissions.
Such as a leaking gas cap.
If the gas cap is ok, you may need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with testing.

My 2001 Grand am gt has a service engine soon light on and it wont go off we took it in and it was ok they said it was a gas cap problem but there are no sensors on it anyidea on how to fix it?

Replace the gas cap a faulty gas cap will cause this to light up if they checked for codes and there were no codes change out the gas cap. Gas caps can and do go bad they get to where they no longer maintain the pressure within Causing your check engine light to light up.

My check engine light comes on? What could it be? It stays on steady. Could it be a faulty gas cap. The car runs fine.

a faulty gas cap could cause an engine code to come on with-out and engine problems if you have to do emission tests or smog tests where you live the one thing there to check it that the gas cap is operating properly. but it could also be a sensor when the engine light comes on the car operates in what is called open loop mode the engine runs in preset peramiters set in the ECM it also runs in this mode til the vehicle is at operating temperator so even if the vehicle seems to be running ok the engine light isn't something that sould go unchecked

2007 Saturn Ion Check Engine Light Gas Cap Problem

Best to rent a scanner and check for other problems. If ok, the scanner will clear the light. If you bought a vented cap, the trouble will remain until a sealed cap is installed.

96 merc.xr7 check engine light always on. i checked oil,trans.fluid,coolant gas cap, powwer st.&brake fluid all are ok. what eles should i check?

Take it to OReily or Advanced Auto Parts. They check the light for free by analyser. Mine was just a dirty gas cap that was setting off light for over 6 months. Give it a try-it's free.
