I know this is an old post... but I had this issue now. I wanted to put my experience out there. I have this car and sure enough, the gas cap light went off. I checked the cap and it was on perfect.. Then sure enough a couple days later my check engine light popped up. They ran my car in the system for the engine light and sure enough there were two evap codes that went off.. They thought it was just the gas cap but then looked into Chrysler known issues and they told me there was a service order for this model car where they need to replace two parts.. one is some kind of filter and something else (didnt pay attention to the name).. but I go back tomorrow to get it fixed. They set an hour appointment as its supposed to be an easy fix. Im hoping it improves gas efficiency some at least, too.

Hi,
With a gas cap that is not all the way tight, the cars computer will sense a small Evaporative system leak. This will turn on the engine light.
Check and make sure the rubber ring on the gas cap is clean and not torn in any way.
I would suggest having the codes on the cars computer ( That is what turned on the engine light)
scanned and read. Some parts houses will do it for free. This will reassure you the the problem was with the gas cap.
Hope this has helped you,
Wayne

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.

It might take 2 or 3 gas fill-ups before the light goes off. Don't worry.

SOURCE: how to shut off gascap light chrsler aspen

You may have a faulty gas cap. If you are tightening the cap down securely the light will go off after the car is driven about 40 miles. I suggest installing a new gas cap which should cost about $15 at your local auto parts store. *** Please rate me on this answer.***

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...

Check engine light on


Try tightening the gascap. Go to an Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys parts store. They will give a free scan and it probably will show that there is an Evaporative emissions system leak. A leaky gascap can generate this Code.

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.

Check engine with error codes P1111 and P0455


The Code 455 is showing the large leak in the Evaporative system (gascap) and the Code 1111 shows there are no defects.

You can get these codes wiped off with a scanner free at Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance. They may clear by themselves after 35 startups.

It would just appear to be a latent record of the old condition before and after you tightened the gascap.

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.

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.
