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.


59 ElCamino, 454, 5-spd
66 ElCamino, 307, 5-spd, 25 mpg
65 Ranchero, 289, 4-spd, my uncle bought it new

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.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
