try taking off the negative battery terminal and sitting it to the side so it wont re-connect by accident to the terminal. Tap the brakes a few times to drain power. let the car sit for 15 minutes or so (30 if you have the time... why not) and re connect it. See if it comes back on.

If what SpectorV doesn't work You may have a problem with the cap not making a good pressure seal and the ECM detecting that.

yup, you can then try another cap, else it may just be the sensor.
