Tighten Fuel Cap Message    (Score: 1, Normal) 04-07-2010 20:47

This just came up today for no apparent reason. I've cranked the fuel cap as tight as it goes but the message won't go away. Anyone else experience this? What's the fix?

That is what I hoped would happen but I just filled up and the message remains.

funny you mention that because when we first got our Odyssey we got the message a few times (we don't have an MID so it must have been an OBD-II code that I checked) but that was almost four years ago and as far as I know it hasn't happened since those first few times. But yeah, it did take a while of driving for the message to go away on its own.

It happened 2x on my 2006 civic. Both times it went away on its own after several days.

Dave, it happened on my 06 TSX too and after a day or so the message went away. I checked the fuel cap about 15 times and it was definitely shut, so I chalked it up to a computer glitch.
