They say it will go off with time, but I don't know. Otherwise you need to go somewhere who has a code analyzer (scanner) to have it reset.

Take it back to the dealer. Make it clear that the light was NOT on when you brought it in so they obviously didn't do something right. HTH. -Jim

Sometimes you can switch the ignition on(do not start), press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and switch it off. All this within 5 seconds. Crank it and see if it works, if not take it the dealer and clear the codes. Someone may have changed the cap or it is not on right. Joe

Disconnect the positive battery terminal for 30 seconds and when u reconnect it and start the truck the code should be gone. -Cj

Did you ever get this fixed, I just had the fuel pump replaced and now my gas cap light is on too?

There was a plug that they did not plug back in. I don't know if it was a vacuum line or what, but I plugged that back in and it went out the next day
