Tighten your gas cap.

more than likely you have a "Small Evap Leak"

nothing serious just make sure you closed the gas cap right. (click it a few times to be sure)

If it blinks = serious trouble.

Regardless I would check vitals in the morning before turning the car on.


Check oil, water.

blinking = mis-fires then it goes into limp mode.



But no solid could be a sensor.

If the car isnt acting up chances are it's just the gas cap.

Limp = Car will only let you rev to like 3k or less

Blinking means its a "EMERGENCY" and to pull the hell over and turn off the engine asap

Next time it comes on, go to auto zone and have the code read. More than likely it will be stored as a "pending dtc" if the light isn't on at the time.

Get the code number and then you can accurately diagnose the issue.

I've never heard of any SES lights being triggered by having low fluids. If it happens again, go to autozone and have the codes read by an ODBII reader like someone said earlier.
