gas cap warning

for some reason the gas cap warning keeps coming on, even when i tighten it up making sure i listen for the clicking noise to know that it's secure. I restart the car and the gas cap warning still comes back on. Anyone else had this problem or a solution for this...thanks

Re: gas cap warning

Usually, theres a seal or gasket, check to make sure its in place, pull your diagnostic codes also, and report back.

Re: gas cap warning

Someone else reported a gas-cap problem recently; turned out to be a bad cap. The dealer was able to check its function and determine it was bad... gave them a new one.

Inferno R/T+R&T, EVIC; 6-disk CD; Sirius; UConnect; Protect Gp; front and rear spoilers, Daytona grille and insert, R/T emblem and hidden trailer hitch.
.

There are 10 possibilities:
you either understand binary, or you don't.

Re: gas cap warning

Not nessecarily. See, a TSB isnt a recall, its a notice to dealers that helps them identify common problems and shortcut troubleshooting time. It does not mean theres a defect with the car, but there has been enough reports of this that DCX wants to let dealers know that when they DO see this issue, the most common reason is whatever is in the TSB

I have not fueled up an LX, so I cant speak to the design, but if DCX discovers that %99 of all reported fuel warning lights are caused by folks not getting a good seal, the TSB might explain that, and direct the service folks to teach the customer how to ensure a tight seal.

Or, if its common that the gasket gets twisted or lost, that might be the meat of the TSB. Do we have anyone with access to the TSBs that can give us the meat of it?

Re: gas cap warning

The more I read about these new cars the more glad I am that I don't have one! I'm not talking Charger, I'm talking ANY new car. You can't even put a gas cap on without some warning light or buzzer? Pretty soon they'll have a thing that goes off to tell you your underwear is the wrong color for that day!
