2006 Honda Odyssey - 1381 km - Tighten Fuel Cap Update

RE: Tighten Fuel Cap message in multi-information display

Well the "Tighten Fuel Cap" message finally went out on our 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring after 5 days, 241 km, 1/2 tank of gas, and numerous restarts. The owner's manual stated that it would reset itself after certain conditions were met, but other Odyssey owners on the forums listed all sorts of other situations that had to happen before the error message cleared. Some took it to their dealer who reset it for them. Some even had to have their gas caps replaced. I simply continued to drive as normal, which unfortunately consisted mostly of short trips and slow speeds. I even filled up the tank with gas. What I think has to happen to reset the message is several good steady stretches of driving at highway speeds with the engine at normal operating temperatures and cooling down in between.
