    Any one else with this issue?????

    Just tryin to see if im not alone in this boat :

    I have a CEL on and wont go away!!, the code reads gas cap, so... checked gas cap.. fine , (there is no seal damage no thread issue, the cap looks brand new), ... re-set cel and at the marker came back on, still reading that its gas cap, checked w/ my tuner and the map we used takes care of any cel issue and nopw my ABS light is on as well, not blinking or anything just staying on after reset..

    Ive heard that older years have a gas cap issue w/ cel but just seems wierd.. any response is appriciated.. thanx

    There is no gas cap code. Post the code number.

    PO442 is likely, and is an evap emissions code.

    I don't understand what this means. From what you've said, neither does your tuner, since you have a CEL but the tuner's map "takes care" of CELs.

    and nopw my ABS light is on as well, not blinking or anything just staying on after reset..
    That's confusing too, since it could be another issue. Have you done brakes recently?

    Am unaware of any issues with gas caps. The evap system itself, OTOH, has a connector and a canister that can, and frequently have, caused evap code CELs. If your gas cap is authentic and seems OK, start with the canister, the lines, and the harness clip back there -- look for clogs or rust.

    sry if confusing, what i mean is that after all my mods the tune removed my prev. cel, .. dont have the code on me im at work and did this during break, dont remember the exact code but in their system the only code that pulls up says "fuel cap" i have had this issue w/ my mothers car, new ford so i know its a common thing sometimes just as simple as tighten the cap but that doesnt seem to be the issue here.

    and abs light ; yes did brakes about 700 miles ago, fluid level is fine and dont think they have worn that bad so soon, ive also heard that abs light can come on when adjusting certain engine manegement incorrectly, (very broad i know) but thats not what has been in this situation,

    guess what ill do is

    and go from there.

    Look in the rear on the right side. There are three hoses -- two held by clamps -- and the canister itself is held by screws (17 ft.lbs. spec).
