Question about 2002 Honda Civic

1 Answer

The yellow/orange indicator light went on two days ago. When it was time to fill up at the gas station, the gas door was loose and also the gas cap. I filled up with gas, was unable to engage the three clicks on the gas cap, but otherwise everything sounds fine. I had a maintenance check on my Honda two weeks ago.

Yesterday I noticed, on my 1997 Honda Del Sol, that the CHECK (yellow) lamp came on. I immediately checked my manual and it stated it had to do with my gas cap. The last time I got gas was about two...


the vehicle randomly runs a test on the vehicle to test the emissions, if the cap was loose it will trip the light. if it is tight the next time it runs the test it will turn the light off.

We have a 2005 Honda crv. Malfunction indicator


Hello Michael.
While your fuel cap may still be an issue there are many other items that may be at fault. It's possible the fuel cap tightening is a coincidence and something else is causing the problem.
There are a few hundred possibilities that could turn on your MIL.
First thing that needs to be done is verify what the code is that turns on the light. If you are in the USA Autozone will give you a free scan to start you off. Then you can begin to home in on the problem.
Best of the festive season to you.

Fuel door indicator light remains on.


You may have one of the following.

A loose gas cap - remove cap and re-tighten again to see if light goes out (may take a while before light goes out)

A faulty gas cap - replace with a new one (shouldn't have failed yet if your car's only a year old)

A faulty fuel sensor only if your fuel level also shows as low (shouldn't have failed yet if your car's only a year old)

There's a vacuum leak somewhere (this would also trigger a check engine light)

Check engine light came on this morning, mazda 3 09', it has 14,500 miles, i just got an oil change at the dealership a few days ago, also i think the gas cap was a little bit loose i noticed the last time...


I would take it back to the dealer and tell them the check engine light came on not long after oil change. Have them run the code on their dime...it's a reasonable request!

A loose gas cap will defintely trigger the engine light, but in most cases, it will reset itself within one week. Some cars don't have a reset which forces you to have a mechanic reset it for you.

Check Engine Light Comes on Intermittently


The P0141 code points to the O2 sensor heater circuit. It could be that there is a short in the wiring to the O2 sensor or it could be that the O2 sensor heating element itself is bad. The code is for O2 sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2. Bank 1 means its the O2 sensor connected to the exhaust pipe that runs to cylinder #1. Sensor 2 means that it is likely the O2 sensor after the catalytic converter on the same exhaust pipe.

Lacetti Chevrolet. Malfunction Indicator light is on.


It may be the same problem as my 56 plate Lacetti. The yellow malfunction light came on two weeks ago and two days ago, both times shortly after filling up with petrol to the brim, and I suspect it is the petrol sensor as I only clicked the petrol cap once after fitting it back - the handbook says click it several times. The yellow light also came on yesterday after taking the car a short journey so it is likely that the sensor is still picking up a small escape of petrol, but the car has been fine today with no light appearing now that the fuel level has dropped a bit. Like you, I have not noticed any drop in power with the light on.
