Hello, 

Thank you for writing in. There are many other sensors and systems in your car that can trigger a check engine light besides the fuel cap. The best way to determine what your vehicle is trying to tell you is to have it "scanned". This is a process of hooking up a small computer to the vehicle, so that you can find out what component is causing the check engine light. Most local part stores will scan your vehicle for free so you will know whats going on. Otherwise you will have to take your vehicle to a shop near you to have it scanned and repaired. Contact your local AskPatty.com female friendly service center for more help. Good luck!
