Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

Have you checked and see what codes are in the PCM? If not that's the first step in determining what is wrong and I would suggest connecting a scantool to retrieve the codes and post them here so I can tell you what to check. You can try cycling the key 3 times and see if any codes appear in the odometer but if not then you will need a scantool or cheap code reader... The Gas Cap message has nothing to do with your no start issue.

Keep me posted

I took it to a garage and they could not get anything out of it to show why it's not starting relative to the codes. Their recommendation was to take it to a dealership to take a little deeper. Iironically it ended up being able to start on its own when I took it to the garage. However last night, I was driving home and it just stalled out

Thanks for the reply!!

What is the last 8 digits of your VIN so I can check on any related stalling cases?
