you need to have it scanned to see what the problem is.

1. Autozone/Advance/Any auto parts store should be able to do it for you.
2. Get an Aeroforce Scan gauge or any other scantool to read the codes yourself.

Check your gas cap, make sure it;* on tight. Then go ahead and drive on it for a few hours, it should turn off if thats the issue. Another option is to activate your Onstar and have them do a diagnostic check for you. I have had the same problem as you twice, and it was that pesky cap both times. Cross your fingers, this could be a cheep and easy fix for ya. Good luck!

Well I'm a idiot and forgot to disconnect the battery after puttting in the sensor so I'm doing that today since I just got my car back, if its still on I'm going to get it scanned again then tell you guys the code.
