A "check fuel cap" message appears but no "check engine" message. What does this indicate?

Asked by Nov 30, 2016 at 10:46 AM about the 2011 Honda CR-V EX-L AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had Honda dealer check and with no "check engine", they could not find any
codes to base any action on. They said to bring it back when I had a 'check
engine" indicator so they could read the code and figure out what to do. What
do I do now, as its been 2 months with "check fuel cap" message but no
"check engine" codes to check.  Thanks Bob

I went to Autozone and got a new cap. I ran it for two weeks and nothing changed. The "check fuel cap" message continues to haunt me. Bob

My 2014 Honda CRV had the "Check fuel cap" message when it is really windy outside, I got fuel two days ago, have driven over 100 miles on the hwy, then today in windy conditions the message appears, I get home turn off car, do not touch fuel cap and message is gone next time I start my CRV, it's only when it's really windy outside
