Tomorrow is the third time I'm bringing my car in. They replaced the gas cap and told me it was fixed. I drive for a bit and it comes on again. I know it is not dangerous, but it is annoying and inconvenient for me to keep bringing it in. It is a 2009 Honda Accord. Some blogs say it is an issue with Hondas, but this is a first for me. Any suggestions?

I had that with my previous 1999 Honda Accord but I replaced it once and it was fine.

Currently I have a 2016 Honda Accord and I had tire pressure problems where the light would be on but the pressure is fine. It went away on its own after the third time.


I would express my annoyance with the dealership and tell them it's your third time. Do you have an experienced technician who can look into this matter?

Update- They said the purge valve had to be replaced, which they did at no charge. Repair is guaranteed for one year, which is a good thing because I'm off for the summer and don't want to sit at the dealership waiting. I just drove the car home and the warning did not come on. Fingers crossed...

Do you securely close your gas cap with at least 2-3 clicks?

I know I need the 3-click. I'm going to pick it up this afternoon, and when the feedback survey comes, I will mention the multiple times I had to bring it in.


Someone told me that I have to drive it 50 miles straight to have the computer reset. My trips are 25 miles or less, so this isn't going to be possible for awhile.

Thank you for your feedback.
