2001 Ford Escort Question: gas cap light on and car wont start whats wrong

went inside a store came out car wont start or turn over the gas cap light and check engine light came on what could be wrong? -
Answer 1
The gas cap light is for an evaporative emissions issue. It probably does not have to do with the car not starting. The engine light will always be on when the vehicle is not started. Does the engine crank at all? -
