I noticed I forgot to put my gas cap back on when I got home from work about 9 miles. This truck if the gas caps off the engine lights should come on right away so why would it not come on?

Do you
have the same problem?

It has to fail the evap test 3 times. The test only runs after an 8 hour cold soak. It would take a day or to to be turned on.

You may not have the air pump. May be just a california option.
