The evap system needs to be checked for leaks but the most likey cause is a defective ESIM which is the small white plastic module attached to the canister. It's relatively inexpensive at under $20.00. It has a switch inside that can stick and cause false reports.

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...

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.

About a month ago my gascap light came on on my 2008 dodge avenger. I replaced it with a locking gascap and about a day later it went away. Today it came back on. What could the problem be?


these are sensitive to the gas cap being installed properly and tightly,if not then the light will come on,this is a system that performs a pressure tested system under the right conditions to make sure there is not a leak in the vapor system of the emission system

My gascap light on my 2008 jeep liberty came on today and i took off the gas cap and put it on again but the light remains on. how can i turn it off?


If the cap is good and the venting system is working properly the code should re-set itself in about twenty miles of driving.

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.

Gascap light comes on everytime i start up the car


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.
