05 gas cap light issue 5.7l 4x4 limited.

Going to get breakfast. My check gas cap light turns on. So I pull over tight it up. Roll out. Still on. Google gas cap light. That's a never ending issue. Could be a EVAP Purge Solenoid, or a cracked line. Looked under the truck. Everything appears to be okay. Checked the EVAP Purge Solenoid. Dis connected it and re connected it. Light still on. Okay. So my last resort I disconnected the battery. Waited 5 mins and reconnected. Light turned off.

It takes a while for the code to reset on its own.

Your gas cap was probably loose, and would have reset on its own...disconnecting the battery just sped the process up a little bit.

Or could be a failed gas cap. Mine would come on every so often so I replaced the cap and haven't seen the alert since.
