Question about 1997 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

Check engine light

I had my check engine light reset.
I was told if it came back on it would be the evaporator box in the drivers rear quarter panel and it would be around $200. It apparently feeds fumes back to the engine to use. When I fill up the gas always spews out when full, could that be causeing the problem.

First change the gas cap. and no,spewing gas doesn't cause this problem. pumping gas with the car running can. you could have a leak in one of the lines, so listen for a air leak before you start spending unnessesary money

95 Ford Taurus wagon 3.0. bumped in the rear and car died immediatly. Cant find the enertia switch. Found some kind of black box inside the drivers side rear quarter panel, but it has no reset swetch.



The emergency shut-off, fuel reset, or inertia switch - all referring to the same thing - is typically located in the back right corner of the vehicle.

Sedan: Open trunk lid, look to right side near fuel filler port, pull back the trunk liner to expose the switch.

Wagon: Open hatch, look to right side near fuel filler port, open access panel.

Recessed into the top of the switch is a red button. If tripped, then push down until it resets, or clicks back into the on position.

I have engine light on and code 1457 on 1999 Odyssey.Please help!!!!!!!!!


That code is "evaporative emission control system leakage. (evap. canister system)"

this code takes at least two drive cycles to set. You can try to reset the engine light and emission computer and clear the code and see if the code resets. If it stays clear, it was probably a spurious code. To reset the engine light and emission computer, pull the No. 13 "clock/backup" (7.5A) fuse in the front passenger's kick panel fuse box. Wait at least 10 seconds. Put the fuse back in. This should put the check engine light out. If the light comes back on after two drive cycles (that is; start, run for a while, turn off X 2) have it checked out by a mechanic.
