Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 1

Possible Causes:



These conditions may cause a catalytic converter to degrade. Inspect for the following conditions:

An engine misfire
 
High engine oil or high coolant consumption
 
Retarded spark timing
 
A weak or poor spark
 
A lean fuel mixture
 
A rich fuel mixture
 
A damaged oxygen sensor or wiring harness
 
The catalyst test may abort if the vehicle falls outside the conditions for running the DTC.
 
If 18 tests have been attempted, and the DTC has not run or passed during this key cycle, turn the key to OFF for 30 seconds. Perform the conditions for running a second time.
 

Caution: Refer to Road Test Caution in Cautions and Notices. Important: A new catalyst may fail this test due to out-gassing of the internal matting. If this occurs, operate the vehicle at highway speeds for approximately one hour and retest. The catalyst may have been temporarily contaminated with a chemical from a fuel additive, fuel contamination, or any of the above conditions.
 

Trouble Code: P0442



Evaporative Emission System Small Leak Detected

Possible Causes:



To help locate intermittent leaks, use the J 41413-200 Evaporative Emissions System Tester (EEST) to introduce smoke into the EVAP system. Move all EVAP components while observing smoke with the J 41413-SPT High Intensity White Light.
 
To improve the visibility of the smoke exiting the EVAP system, observe the suspected leak area from different angles with the J 41413-SPT .
 
For intermittent conditions, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 

Trouble Code: P0443



Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid Control Circuit

Trouble Code: P0446



Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent System Performance

Possible Causes:



When using the J 41413-200 Evaporative Emission System Tester (EEST) to apply pressure, you can regulate the amount of pressure by activating the remote switch ON and OFF. While observing pressure in the EVAP system, using a scan tool, DO NOT use more than 5 inches H2O. More than 5 inches H2O applied to the EVAP system can cause the canister vent solenoid valve to temporarily remain in the closed position, which could lead to misdiagnosis in this procedure.
 
An intermittent condition could be caused by a damaged EVAP vent housing, a temporary blockage at the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve inlet, or a pinched vent hose. A blockage in the vent system will also cause a poor fuel fill problem.
 
For intermittent conditions, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 
An EVAP canister, vent house, or vent solenoid valve that has restricted flow may cause this DTC to set. Using the purge solenoid valve command with a scan tool will allow vacuum to be applied to the system instead of pressure. With the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve open and the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve commanded to 100 percent, vacuum should not increase to more than 9 inches H2O.
 

Trouble Code: P0449



Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent Solenoid Control Circuit

Trouble Code: P0451



Fuel Tank Pressure (FTP) Sensor Performance

Possible Causes:



A restriction in the EVAP canister or vent lines could prevent fuel vapor pressure from bleeding off fast enough. If the vent system cannot bleed off pressure fast enough, the re-zero procedure may not complete successfully, which could cause this code to set. By using the purge solenoid command on a scan tool, vacuum can be applied to the system instead of pressure. With the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve open and the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve commanded to 100 percent, the vacuum should not increase to more than 9 inches H2O.
 
Ensure that the reference port on the FTP sensor is unobstructed.
 

Trouble Code: P0452



Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Voltage

Trouble Code: P0453



Fuel Tank Pressure (FTP) Sensor Circuit High Voltage

Trouble Code: P0454



Fuel Tank Pressure (FTP) Sensor Circuit Intermittent

Possible Causes:



This diagnostic is designed to detect an unexpected abrupt voltage signal change from the FTP.
 
Scan tool output controls, snapshot, and plot functions can help detect erratic sensor response. To look at the sensor signal under vacuum conditions, use snapshot and the purge/seal function to capture data while commanding purge to 30 percent, and then plot the data to look for erratic sensor operation. A similar inspection can be done for the pressure side of the sensor range by applying pressure with the J 41413-200 Evaporative Emissions System Tester (EEST) while taking a snapshot.
 
Ensure that the reference port on the FTP sensor is unobstructed.
 

Trouble Code: P0455



Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Large Leak Diagnostic

Possible Causes:



To help locate intermittent leaks, use the J 41413-200 Evaporative Emission System Tester (EEST) to introduce smoke into the EVAP system. Move all EVAP components while observing smoke with the J 41413-SPT High Intensity White Light. Introducing smoke in 15 second intervals will allow less pressure into the EVAP system. When the system is less pressurized, the smoke will sometimes escape in a more condensed manner.
 
A temporary blockage in the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve, purge pipe, or EVAP canister could cause an intermittent condition. Inspect and repair any restriction in the EVAP system.
 
To improve the visibility of the smoke exiting the EVAP system, observe the suspected leak area from different angles with the J 41413-SPT .
 
Reviewing the Failure Records vehicle mileage since the diagnostic test last failed may help determine how often the condition that caused the DTC to be set occurs. This may assist in diagnosing the condition.
 
For intermittent conditions, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 

Trouble Code: P0461



Fuel Level Sensor Performance

Possible Causes:



Use the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data in order to locate an intermittent condition. If you cannot duplicate the DTC, the information included in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data may help in determining the number of miles since the DTC set. The Fail Counter and Pass Counter can also help in determining the number of ignition cycles that the diagnostic test reported a pass and/or fail. Operate the vehicle within the same freeze frame conditions, including those for RPM, for engine load, for vehicle speed, for temperature, and for others. This will isolate at what point the DTC failed.
 
Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.
 

Trouble Code: P0462



Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Low Voltage

Possible Causes:



Use the Freeze Frame and/or Failure Records data in order to locate an intermittent condition. If you cannot duplicate the DTC, the information included in the Freeze Frame and/or Failure Records data may aid in determining the number of miles since the DTC set. The Fail Counter and Pass Counter can also aid in determining the number of ignition cycles that the diagnostic reported a pass and/or fail. Operate the vehicle within the same freeze frame conditions (RPM, engine load, vehicle speed, temperature, etc.). This will isolate when the DTC failed.
