it may not be your fuel cap anymore. simply hit the reset button on your steering wheel to get rid of the warning. didn't realize we had that particular alarm....

As soon as I push any button on the steering wheel, the alarm goes away, but comes always back after turn off the engine or off ignition.
As soon as I start the engine it comes back and stays until I push another button.

This feature is in trailblazer, tahoe etc also in the software.

if you put a locking fuel cap on like you wanted to do you will alawys have that alarm because the fuel system has to be air tight when the pcm runs the evap test and locking caps wont seal. I see this all the time in my job as a chev tech

Did you buy and put on a different gas cap? If so could this not fit the same as the original and not sealing properly? just a thought!

Alarm goes away by himself

I found a very cool lockable gas-door on the internet which match perfect to the wheels and was easy to install. Price 95 usd incl. shipment
Here you can see it and in real it look much better too.l

new gas cap

yes you are right, but its much easier to install because of the cutoff for the old door.

I will try later to fix it, but it take a lot of time and i want to see how it looks like.

I owned another Chevy previous to my SSR - every time I did not torque down on the gas cap after filling, that alarm came on. Once on, it would stay active for 3-4 days even after I re-tightened the gas cap. I never figured out what it took to clear/reset the alarm - it would just eventually go away and come on again if I did not tighten the cap on a subsequent fill up. Maybe it's a Chevy thing....
