#19 of 20 RE: Honda Fuel Cap Issue [tayk]
Dec 10, 2011 (2:38 pm)
2012 odyssey touring, the light was on during test drive was told no issue and the light was 'turn off' when pick up the van, The light came back on the next day and would not go away. The dealer reset it again, drove half a mile from the dealership, the light came back and turn back of drop off the car. The tech did the following: changed fuel cap, changed canister, and did more tests recommend from the honda tech line, light still turns on, they finally replace the computer (pcm) and it solves the problem for good. The dealer I went to did a good job fixing the problem but this should not happened in the first place if the manufacture had better quality control. This problem is there in day one.

An easy solution is to continue to drive the car over 12 trips or so and the false message will disappear by itself. I have a 2006 Odyssey that does this occasionally and investigated it quite a bit. The car's computer will cancel the message automatically after enough trips are made. Any other solution is cumbersome and not worth it. good luck
