3.3l engine. What are the probable causes of DTC P1495?


answer courtesy of engine codes .com Engine-Codes OBDII Code List P1495 Dodge
P1495 Dodge P1495 Dodge - EVAP Leak Detection Pump Solenoid Circuit Condition 3 ' Add Comment Possible causes
- Faulty Leak Detection Pump (LDP)
- Leak Detection Pump (LDP) harness is open or shorted
- Leak Detection Pump (LDP) poor electrical connection
What does this mean? When is the code detected?
Malfunction is detected when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the pump solenoid did not change status when activated,
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors
P1495 Dodge Description
The Evaporative emissions system is design to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, ca allow vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage.
During the self-diagnostics, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) first checks the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for electrical and mechanical faults. If the first checks pass, the PCM then uses the LDP to seal the vent valve and pump air into the system to pressurize it. If a leak is present, the PCM will continue pumping the LDP to replace the air that leaks out. The PCM determines the size of the leak based on how fast/long it must pump the LDP as it tries to maintain pressure in the system.

I rest the code with a scanner after installing the new pcm & ldp still code comes right back also smoke tested & no vissible leaks


That code deals with the leak detection pump , look for leaking hoses under the vehicle coming from the fuel tank , if rotten or torn replace , it can also be the leack detection pump itself which is mounted close to the tank or under the hood if under the hood it will have a black plastic line with a green screw on cap going to thr pump ,it doesnt matter if you cannot find leaks the leak detection pump could be shot and not operating .

What is a P2404 code mean from a suzuki sx4


Trouble Code: P2404 (2.0L L4 VIN 5 Automatic CVT)
Evaporative Emission System Leak Detection Pump Sense Circuit Range / Performance
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
Trouble Code Conditions:
EVAP vent valve stuck open: EVAP leak check pressure is lower than -0.14 kPa even if EVAP vent valve is operated from OFF (OPEN) to ON (CLOSE) with EVAP leak detection pump ON. EVAP vent valve stuck closed: EVAP leak check pressure is unstable (difference between maximum and minimum is 0.36 kPa or more) when EVAP vent valve is OFF (OPEN) with EVAP leak detection pump ON. EVAP leak detection pump stuck OFF: EVAP leak check pressure is higher than -0.14 kPa even if EVAP leak detection pump is ON. EVAP leak detection pump flow high: Reference pressure of EVAP leak check pressure is lower than specified value (depending on BARO) EVAP leak detection pump flow Low: Reference pressure of EVAP leak check pressure is higher than specified value (depending on BARO).
Possible Causes:
  • EVAP leak detection pump (in EVAP leak check module) and/or its circuit
  • EVAP vent valve (in EVAP leak check module) and/or its circuit
  • EVAP leak check module and/or its circuit
  • ECM

2000 dodge stratus p1495 code problem


Check your connections on your leak detection pump and vacuum hose to the engine. You will need a scanner to do a wiggle test on the wiring harness this is a common problem.

The code is telling you that you have a problem with the pump.

DTC P1495 - LEAK DETECTION PUMP SOLENOID CIRCUIT
WHEN MONITORED Ignition on and battery voltage greater than 10.4 volts .
SET CONDITION The state of the solenoid circuit does not change.

POSSIBLE CAUSES: Fused ignition switch output circuit open
Leak detection pump defective LDP solenoid circuit wiring harness observable def LDP solenoid ckt wiring harness intermittent def LDP solenoid control circuit short to ground Leak detection pump solenoid control circuit open Powertrain control module defective

Hope helps.

Engine light stays on code p1494


P1494 code is a leak detection pump switch or mechanical fault, leak detection pump switch does not respond to input. The leak detection pump (if equipped) is located under the air filter housing on models through 2001. Check if the vapor and vacuum lines are securely connected to the leak detection pump or a diagonstic trouble code my be set like this. The leak detection pump switch may be bad and need replaced.

Code p1494. what do i look for.


P1494 (M)Leak Detection Pump Sw or Mechanical Fault. Incorrect input state detected for the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) pressure switch.

The Evaporative LDP switch may be bad or the pump itself has a problem. Check the pump, the wire connections, and the hoses attached to it.





LEAK DETECTION PUMP (LDP)
OPERATION
The Leak Detection Pump (LDP) is used only with
certain emission packages.
The LDP is a device used to detect a leak in the
evaporative system.
The pump contains a 3 port solenoid, a pump that
contains a switch, a spring loaded canister vent valve
seal, 2 check valves and a spring/diaphragm.
Immediately after a cold start, engine temperature
between 40°F and 86°F, the 3 port solenoid is briefly
energized. This initializes the pump by drawing air
into the pump cavity and also closes the vent seal.
During non-test test conditions, the vent seal is held
open by the pump diaphragm assembly which pushes
it open at the full travel position. The vent seal will
remain closed while the pump is cycling. This is due
to the operation of the 3 port solenoid which prevents
the diaphragm assembly from reaching full travel.
After the brief initialization period, the solenoid is
de-energized, allowing atmospheric pressure to enter
the pump cavity. This permits the spring to drive the
diaphragm which forces air out of the pump cavity
and into the vent system. When the solenoid is energized
and de-energized, the cycle is repeated creating
flow in typical diaphragm pump fashion. 180562d1295135687t-diagnostic-code-p1494-evap-wldp.jpg

How do i replace the natural vacuum leak detection pump on a 2005 dodge dakota?


Vehicles equipped with NGC engine control modules use an NVLD pump and system. Vehicles equipped with JTEC engine control modules use a leak detection pump. Refer to Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for additional information.
The Natural Vacuum Leak Detection (NVLD) system is the next generation evaporative leak detection system that will first be used on vehicles equipped with the Next Generation Controller (NGC). This new system replaces the leak detection pump as the method of evaporative system leak detection. This is to detect a leak equivalent to a 0.020 (0.5 mm) hole. This system has the capability to detect holes of this size very dependably.


Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support vehicle.
  2. Remove left-rear tire.
  3. Remove plastic shield (4) in front of left-rear tire. Access to both the EVAP canister (1) and NVLD pump (6) is from the area in front of the removed tire.
  4. Disconnect electrical connector at NVLD pump.
  5. Remove vapor line at NVLD pump. Pry outward on tab (3) and rotate pump (6) clockwise about 70 for removal.
  6. Remove NVLD pump O-ring (5) from EVAP canister (1).
To Install:
  1. Install new NVLD pump O-ring (5) to EVAP canister (1).
  2. Position NVLD pump (6) into EVAP canister (1).
  3. Rotate pump (6) until tab aligns with notch in EVAP canister (1).
  4. Carefully install vapor/vacuum lines to NVLD pump.
    WARNING The vapor/vacuum lines and hoses must be firmly connected. Check the vapor/vacuum lines at the NVLD pump, filter and EVAP canister purge solenoid for damage or leaks. If a leak is present, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may be set.
  5. Connect electrical connector to pump.
  6. Install plastic shield in front of left-rear tire.
  7. Install left-rear tire.
