Gas Cap light came on

2003 Taurus

Besides the obvious----like the gas cap----what else makes this light come on?
My son was driving to school this morning when he called me and said that
"The light on the dash that looks like a tire with a screw in it came on."

I had to go out to my pickup and turn the key on to see what the hell he was talking about.

Told him to make sure the cap was tight----but the light still on
when he came home from school today.

I have no clue----yet.

First the dash lights----now this.

Car seems to be running okay.

The car did sit for a long time before I bought it tho----about 18 mo.

Re: Gas Cap light came on

Gas cap could be a leaky vent, not too terribly uncommon. The other light could be low tire pressure.
