    Didnt have my gas cap screwed on tight and Red light, VSC, and ! light came on. I was told if I ride it for a couple of days lights should go out. After a couple of days, when I went to turn on my car, nothing happened. My headlights turn on and if I leave the key in the car with the door open, it beeps. Tried holding the start button for 45 seconds, nothing happens. Can someone tell me where to look next or what the problem may be? Thankds

    1. The problem is not your gas cap, that would only light up the "check engine" light. Not all the lights you listed.

    If I had to guess, I would say your hv battery is the problem
