You can have the codes cleared at most larger parts stores. Otherwise, the computer needs to run through self diagnostics.... That usually takes about 30 or so miles of driving.

Take it down to your local auto parts store and ask them to (wink wink) scan for codes and since it will come up with a "gross/large evap leak" and you have already replaced the cap, i guess they could clear it. Most places will do this for free. Don't pay unless you want to tip the guy.

Remove the battery cables for approx 1-2 minutes and reinstall. that will clear it out.

I have a 2005 Jeep liberty and I recently lost my gas cap(4 days ago). My check engine light came on and I am wondering if it is due to the gas cap being lost. Going to buy a new one today.


Yes...the cap needs to be on there or the purge system will register a leak. The light may not go out right away but usually will after about thirty miles of driving. (computer needs to go through a complete self test cycle).

My 2005 Jeep Liberty v6 3.7L 4x2 (Basic base model) check engine light came on and my car mileage is 90,100 miles but I did not pay attention if it came on at 90k. My gas cap also was lost a few days ago...


Gas cap is the most likely cause. For more info you may consider registering for free at autozone.com The registration gives you access to dozens of free manuals which are very helpful.

Gas Cap Error with Check Engine light


By "Replace the gas cap", do you mean put it back on, or buy another one? If you fuel these trucks with the engine running, or don't tighten the gas cap, the light will come on. It will also come on when the seal in your gas cap goes bad. I have had to replace the gas cap on my jeep and dodge already. It fixed the problem both times.
