Default gas cap light

I dont know if this forum has been created yet but i have a 09 ram 1500 and for 6 months and 4 trips to the dealer i still have this light on. No one can fix it it seems anyone else have this problem and had it resolved maybe a pointer to tell the tech.THX

Have they checked the EVAP canister, the vapor line to it and the ESIM switch?

I agree...it is a vacuum leak in the fuel system somewhere.

Have they cleared the code and it comes back or are they totally unable to clear the code and have the light go off, even for a few minutes?

I hope they have replaced the gas cap at least to ensure its sealing properly, thats easy to check

Can you take a picture of the evap canister under your truck. Try to take the picture showing the vapor line connection and the wiring connection.

I'm suspecting the ESIM (Evaporative System Integrity monitor) switch is either defective, not connected properly, or not orientated properly.
