I got a gas cap loose warning today and I think it wasn't tight but now how do you reset the warning light. Mine has a normal gas cap.

ATP Pilot is starting off with a positive reputation.
from page 194 of my owners manual:

"
The check fuel cap light or Check fuel cap message may not reset

immediately; it may take several driving cycles for the indicators to turn

off. A driving cycle consists of an engine start-up (after four or more

hours with the engine off) followed by normal city and highway driving."

Thanks I didn't look that far into the manual or didn't think it would be in that section. We are sitting in a casino parking in Laughlin hooked up so it will be a few days before we drive the truck agian.

I downloaded the manual from Ford, I use the search feature to find stuff. Makes it easy for me doing a word search.

After about 45 min into our move the light went out, I'm glad it did or I would have had disconnect my aux fuel tank to make sure that wasn't the problem.
