Check the gas cap and replace it if the seal looks bad, then disconnect the battery for a few minutes (switch on the lights or some other load at this time to ensure all residual charge is depleted) to reset the error codes stored in the ECU.
Thanks for the reply. You're right on the money. My wife went to get the emissions test done today and they tested (and passed) the gas cap. They didn't even test emissions for her, but pulled the error code and gave that to her with a failed test paper. I disconnected the battery and CEL gone. I'll have her go back tomorrow for the real test. Thanks again. Hopefully, this will be a pretty dependable vehicle and I won't have to use the forum often, but for a first time use, same day service, problem solved, not a bad place to be!!!!
