I have a bout 1000 miles on my truck and it has been running flawlessly. However, today I got in to start it and I got the message "check fuel cap". I got out, checked the fuel cap (that was already tightly secured), removed it and resecured it. I still got the same message when I tried to start it. It did crank up and still runs fine, but I don't know what's going on with the message. I haven't had a chance yet to take it to the dealer, so I was wondering if anyone else had a similar occurence or a solution. Thanks in advance.

Do a search, there is some discussion on this here. It happened to me a few weeks ago as well. The threads talk about it taking a few days to clear up, which in my case was about 3-4 days.
I meant to stop by the dealer as well because the nagging was annoying, but never got around to it... sometimes procrastination works really well! :p

Farmguy is right. The Owner's Manual mentions this that once the fuel cap has been "cleared" that it takes a few days for the message to go away. I think it took 2 - 3 days for ours to go away. It only happened to us once, at about 1000 miles also.
Hope this helps.

Yes it does help, and thanks a lot for the quick responses. This proves that the ROC is definitely the best source of information around. I came here before I even consider going to my dealership. I'm sure the info is also more reliable here than at the dealership.
Hopefully I will someday be able to provide a ROC member with some useful information instead of just freeloading off the other members all the time. Until then I will continue to become enlightened by the intelligence of the other members.
