I had a strange looking warning light pop up on my '01 SES yesterday. It is within the tachometer guage circle and looks like a bolt next to the right rear quarter panel of the car. The only thing I can think of is the gas cap? If that is it it is on fine and was replaced just 2 years ago during an inspection. I don't know what else it could be. Thanks in advance for the help.

if that doesnt help... like if it just pops back on... get a new cap, mine was less than 15 bucks.

Yeah that means that the gas cap is loose or no longer engaging the sensor. If your gas cap doesnt make a firm "click" when twisted you should replace it. otherwise this will show up :thumb:
