You mean the 'check engine' light? I heard that with the computers on cars these days, if the loose gas tank lid was the problem, you have to start and stop the car like over 1000 times for the light to go off again, or take it to the shop who can reset the computer.Not an expert, but that's what my mother in law was told about her mazda when it happened to her.

If the engine light is still on, you probably have an actual problem to be pin-pointed by your dealer.
