SOURCE: what P0453-Evaporative Emission control System Pressure Sensor h

P0453 is for the fuel tank pressure sensor. This code means that the voltage on the sensor was greater than 4.5V during key on engine off or during any engine operating mode.
Normal voltage from this sensor with no vacuum or pressure on the system should be 2.37 to 2.97V.
PCM sends a reference voltage of 5V to the sensor and tells if there is pressure or vacuum in the fuel tank by the voltage that returns from the sensor.

Possible causes are:

  • FTP circuit open
  • VREF shorted to VPWR
  • Damaged PCM
  • FTP circuit shorted to VREF or VPWR
  • SIG RTN circuit open
  • Damaged FTP sensor

  • Usually it is a loose connector at the sensor or a bad sensor.
    It mounts on top of the fuel tank,has a 3 wire connector. To replace it you have to push down on it and twist,if I remember right CC.

    What does code PO453 mean


    the evaporative emission system (EVAP) control system pressure sensor has sent high voltage to the ecm or engine control module and triggered this code either the purge valve located under the car by the gas tank has gone bad, or the charcoal canister has become gas soaked and is pressurizing from gas fumes, or the sensor or wires have shorted , there is also a secondary valve located und the cover of the intake that should also be checked for shorts that can trigger this code but usually it is the one under the car that goes out 9 out of 10 times it is from fuel being burped into the evap canister or charcoal canister from the gas tank which is caused from overfilling the tank or mid day heat of 90 or better with a full tank

    2003 windstar stalls when driving, idles high in neutral, now 4 codes


    ok so much done owell next is the mass air flow to be checked then the fuel regulator to check pressure and the fuel pump for pressure and then check the cat,s for back pressure wood be my next thing and Last is the how many Km,s does it Have ?sounds like filter needs lookin at in the tranny if she,s got High Km,s if not then check the intake for leaks it,s Plastic so don,t hurt gone this far Let me Know What Happens,s Thank,s

    Ford error code p0453


    This code is set when there is a high voltage reading coming from the fuel tank pressure sensor. It could be a problem with the wiring going to the sensor... or the sensor itself.

    I have a code p0453 is a ford fiesta 2012 what's the probleme


    P0453 FORD - EVAP Pressure Sensor/Switch High
    Possible causes- Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Pressure Sensor/Switch harness is open or shorted
    - Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Pressure Sensor/Switch circuit poor electrical connection
    - Faulty Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Pressure Sensor/Switch
    - Damaged fuel tank pressure sensor

    This likely is an emission system warranty problem.

    Could it be that the ecu is wrong


    No it is not Catalytic Converter related. Your fuel tank pressure sensor must be disconnected or the wiring to it defective for the evaporative emission system.

    PO453 WHAT DOES THIS MEAn


    The generic code from http://www.obd-codes.com/p0453 for all ODBII cars is:
    P0453 - Evaporative Emissions Control System Pressure Sensor High Input OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description

    Evaporative Emissions Control System Pressure Sensor High Input
    What does that mean?

    The EVAP (Evaporative Emissions) System allows fuel tankmag-glass_10x10.gif vapors to be purged into the engine and burnt rather than expelled into the atmosphere as harmful emissions. The EVAP system contains a pressure sensor to check the integrity of the system. Periodically, the EVAP system performs a pressure test to check that there are no leaks in the system. It uses this sensor, also known as a fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor to check for leaks. Basically P0453 means the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) noticed the EVAP Pressure sensor or FTP is indicating a higher than normal pressure (above 4.5 Volts) in the EVAP system. NOTE: On some vehicles the FTP is a part of the fuel pump assembly in the tank.
    FB.init("dd7d9e9681341cde77587bc6a2029f6f"); OBD-Codes.com on Facebook Potential Symptoms

    There will likely be no noticeable symptoms along with this code other than the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp), commonly known as Check Engine Light illumination. However, there may be noticeable fuel odors in some cases.
    Causes

    A P0453 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:

    • Open on FTP sensor signal wire
    • Short to voltage on FTP sensor signal wire
    • Bad FTP sensor
    • Abnormally high pressure in fuel tank due to blockage in EVAP purge hoses or overfilled tank
    • Loose/damaged FTP sensor connector
    • Loss of ground to the sensor
    Possible Solutions

    Using an scan tool access FTP sensor value with Key on Engine off (KOEO). Normal value is usually somewhere near 2.5 Volts at atmospheric pressure (may fluctuate some due to altitude). It shouldn't ever be above 4.5 Volts.

    1) If it is close to 2.7V with the gas cap off, the problem is likely intermittent. Using a Digital Volt Ohm Meter, measure the voltage on the signal wire while trying to induce the problem by wiggle testing all the wiring at the FTP sensor. If the voltage fluctuates when wiggle testing, check for connector problems; i.e. water in the connector, broken or chafed wiring.

    2) If the value shown on the scan tool is above 4.5V, unplug the sensor (if possible) and check for voltage again. If the high voltage is still present when unplugged, inspect wiring harness for a short to voltage on the signal wire. If the high voltage disappears when unplugging the sensor, check for a good ground to the sensor and proper reference voltage. If you have a good ground and 5 Volts reference voltage, replace the FTP sensor since it's likely shorted out.

    I have replaced my mass airflow system just replacedvthe fuel pressure regulator and way to many other parts to remember. there is a code that keeps coming up when i check it at autozone. the code is p0453...


    Yes a common GM problem. The fuel tank pressure sensor is malfunctioning. You will have to lower the fuel tank down and you will see a black square device like 1" X1" square. It is held in by a rubber fitting you have to pry it out after disconnecting the wire plug. Make sure you put a little wd-40 on the rubber and sensor when you reinstall it or you may damage the gasket causing the system to leak. Then plug in the electrical plug and put the tank back in place. After a drive cycle is completed the code should clear itself or you can clear the code with a scanner and see if it comes back. Now if it does come back check every connection and hose to the vent canister to see iff there is a bad connector, rubbed thru hose or loose connection. But the connections usually will not give low and high readings if bad just low reading. Hope tghat helps you along, Thanks for asking Fixya.com
