Is the car still running fine? Even though the light is on?

Dodge Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

There are several reasons for the light to come on. Usually if the car is still running fine with the light on it's a problem with the evap emissions system. Loose gas cap is a good place to start as a lot of times something that simple will cause the light. If you find the cap is loose, tighten it. The light will still stay on for a bit because the computer has to run a self test. If the cap is fine, then you will need to have the codes checked. With over 500 reasons for the light to be on, it gives us a starting point. Most of the parts stores will check these for free these days. If you want to get the code and post it here with me, I can provide a much more detailed answer. Just know, that if the car is running normally even with the light on, it's safe to drive it. You won't cause any more damage or have it stall out and leave you stranded.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Gas cap is attached to the door. Not a screw on cap. Is there any way I can get it to display the code, without taking to automotive store or dealer?
Dodge Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

Give this a try and let me know.

insert key into ignition

turn to ACC

then turn the key to ON (don't actually start the car)

now do that 2 more times in rapid succession

ACC, ON, ACC, ON, ACC, ON

and the code will appear where your mileage does

no that did not work
Dodge Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

I have no other information on getting the codes out.

It is likely an evap emissions code, especially because you have the capless fuel fill.

Sorry, I thought that would work. Used to be able to go from off to on 5 times to get it, so you could try that. Otherwise you are going to need a code reader that can communicate with the PCM

if evap emission, will I need to replace the entire gas door, or the the cap
Dodge Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Mechanic replied 5 months ago

Well, the evap system has a bunch of parts. This is why we need to get the code. I believe just the cap can be replaced, but without a code it's difficult to know where to begin looking for the problem. Could get expensive just replacing parts on the car.

Were you able to have the codes read?
