If the fault is the gas cap, around 3 cycles, or driving somewhere and turning the car on and off a few times a day or over a couple days it should go out. If it's still on after a few days, scan again.

A faulty or loose gas cap will set an EVAP System code. To reset keep your gas tank between 3/4 and 1/4. No more and no less. The computer will only run the diagnosis of the EVAP System while the gas tank is within this range. After a few days of driving normally the light should go out. If not, then have it scanned again.

I had this problem when I purchase my XL7. There is a sensor near or at the top of the neck of the fuel pipe. All you have to do is turn the cap several times, my wife turns it 7 clicks or more, and the lite will not come on.

My friend had it tuned up at PEP Boys and they installed the wrong spark Plugs and after having every Mechanic including Suzki try to figure out why the Check engine light kept turning, they even tried to sell him a new car. He showed the car to my mechanic. Pep Boys for their tune up installed German spark plugs!

I had a new motor put in my suzuki xl7 2007. The mechanics that done the swap said I need my computer reset to have everything working properly. The air don't work, the panel flashes, the vechile being hot, and the traction light flashes. Plus it will quit, then stop and let it reset and it will go a little bit more
