I have never heard of a check fuel cap light. Never.


Do you mean your Check Engine Light, or Check Engine Soon light ?

If you do, that means something happened that your cars computer didnt like and stored a code for that. Go to Autozone or someplace like that and have your "codes" read. Then tell us what it said and we can help you fix it.

Well, I'll be. Didnt know the Gts had that. His thread doesnt say anything about his car. Or what it is. Guess he has a problem with his cap needing to be replaced.

yep, could it also be an evaporative emissions fault translated for the average auto tech-impaired driver as "check fuel cap"?

I'm not sure if the PCM stores this as a fault code or not. Try clearing the memory from your PCM after you are sure the cap is tight. If that doesn't work then you might need a new cap.

Either take off the negative terminal on your battery and let it sit for a while. Or take it to like Autozone and have them cleared.

Having the codes cleared is only a temporary fix. If you want to get rid of the code you should go to Auto Zone and have them tell you to code that it is throwing so you can fix the problem.

x2, have the code read, don't disconnect the battery, and if you want to clear the code, do it with the scanner if you don't want to lose PCM KAM data.
