2002 CRV warning light

    The engine warning light went on after a fillup. Sure enough the gas
    cap was loose. I tightened it many turns. But that was 50 miles ago.
    The car has been used for at least 10 short drives, and the light is
    still on. Shouldn't the light be off by now? Maybe it's something
    besides the gas cap. Any way to get the codes from a Honda? TIA

    I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago. The only way to find out what
    was going on (for me) was to take the car in to the dealership and have the
    code read and cleared. That being done, the car wouldn't cause the check
    engine light to come back on, so there was nothing to repair/replace. Having
    the code read and cleared, did cost forty six dollars and change, though.

    If you remove battery cable and reattach, it'll clear it.

    I was told by the shop foreman at the dealership that I deal with, that
    effective with the 2004 models, it is going to be a requirement, that you
    take the vehicle in to the dealerships to have the code read and the light
    reset. Whether this is some governmental/environmental 'law' or not, I can't
    say at this time.
