The easiest and cheapest thing to do is disconnect the battery for at least 60 seconds. This will reset the computer and should reset the lights.(NO this dosn't harm anything except you will have to reset your radio stations) Most of the time it can take a day or so for the lights to go out once the battery has been disconnected.

Had my 2007 prius serviced this am. on the way home a red light light came on with a tire light and a amber vsc check light came on. What does this mean?

You need to get the fault codes read because of the red check engine light coming on. Do you have an OBDII reader? or does a friend have one? If not ... I would take it back to where you got it serviced.
The piece of data that could be helpful is the check engine light going on after refueling. If you are lucky ... you may have not 100% screwed the fuel cap back on with the final clicking. That can cause the check engine light to go on. It is curious though that your tire and VSC lights went on ... there may be something electrical going haywire.

Your tire sensors are sensing different size tires./ Your tires are rotating at different speeds because of the size difference. put the same tires on the front axle if front wheel drive. and the same tires on the rear if rear wheel drive. be sure to match tire pressure.

Why will my 1994 Honda Accord not start in hot weather?

Do you get an error code? Try running a scan on it with a borrowed OBDII tester or one at a local repair shop (tell them you ONLY want the CODE, not the work).

If no error code, has anyone bypassed any of the evaporative emissions equipment? The charcoal canister, especially? If you get too much fuel vapor in the canister, it may flood the engine.

Does the car have the correct gas cap? That's important, because the cap is an integral part of the evaporative emission system, and the wrong cap may not permit fuel vapor from the tank to charge the charcoal canister correctly. Try opening the gas cap for a moment, then reclosing it, on a hot day just before trying to start the car to see if that helps.

Last, check (or have checked) the fuel pressure and flow rate AT the FUEL RAIL on the engine. There's a tap on the fuel rail where you can attach a fuel pressure gauge; you can use the same tap to check flow rate. Your fuel pump may be ready to die...

When my engine light comes on, it's usually because my gas cap it loose and I open and reclose it, making sure it is closed correctly and after several miles of driving, the light goes out.

Smells like gas when started and engine light came on. started after a gas fill up and continued to the next fill, light went out then at the next fill again the light came on. I have check the gas cap,...

get it checked it sounds like an EVAP code will turn up and have to be fixed as gas fumes are dangerous, to find and fix this you will need the system smoked .and tested by a shop with a scanner to test all the sensors.

92 roadmaster, using way to much gas.

Unless you have a particular symptom or a 'service engine soon' light on I would go buy the following maintenance schedule:
1. Change fuel filter EVERY 10,000 miles.
2. Check air filter at the same time. (held up to a light, you should easily see the light through it).
3. Replace spark plugs EVERY 15,000 miles and plug wires (cap & rotor if so equipped) every 30,000.
4. Don't forget tire pressure - this can have a drastic impact on MPG. Many 'newer' tires require a maximum 44 psi, yet many of us still go by the 35 psi standard of old never looking on the tire. All tires are clearly marked as to maximum psi and remember the average tire gains 1psi of pressure for every 10 degrees.
Hope this helps.
