when i switch my car(05 SE ZX4 d20) off, key out, parked and all that jazz, i have 3 indicator lights dimly lit. "Check Fuel Cap", "Seat Belt" (or as i call it, buckle up or i drive you insane light)and "Check Engine".

when im driving CEL and Check Fuel Cap Lights are on and have been for over 2 years, for a P0455 - Large EVAP leak(which im soon fixing). but for over a year it was just the fuel cap light being the ghost light, then just recently(bout a month ago) CEL lght started Ghosting, and very dimly, Seat Belt. and check fuel cap is getting progressivly brighter.

any insight? help is appreciated.

its drving me insane[rant]

Bad wire connection or two wires crossing somewhere. That's my best guess.

Remove the instrument cluster and clean the contacts. Have you checked the 2 smaller negative terminal wires at the battery? These bolt to the negative terminal using rings. Mine broke and caused some really funky problems. I had unbolt the wires to see that the rings were cracked and one was separated.

The source of the "Check Fuel Cap" will cause a "Large Evap Leak" code. Fix the cap you will likely fix the evap leak.
