Open Question

Evaporative emmission control system pressure sensor high input

THERE WAS A CODE STORED & THIS IS WHAT THE CODE SHOWED THAT WAS WRONG. WHAT IS THIS SENSOR & WHERE IS IT? this is a 2003 focus se the brake light stays on, the abs light was on , now I have it off. I need some input. thanks

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.

    SOURCE: How do you reset ABS light\system after replacing

    turn the ignition to on position and disconnect one of terminals of battery for 30 sec to one minute and reconnect battery . turn off ignition and restart vehicle . If that doesn't work go to dealer .

    I have a 98 safari van that has been put on a scanner which the codes read: P0420(catalyst system efficiency below threshold-bank1), P0452(evaporative emission control system pressure sensor low imput) and...


    You may need a mechanic. At least a shop manual.
    The catalytic converter code means the computer does not think the cat is working right based on input from the O2 sensors. That data would need to be checked out and verified along with a temp scan of the cat itself.
    The other two codes are saying the signal from the pressure sensor is too high and too low. The computer measures pressure inside the gas tank to make sure it vents correctly. The pressure sensor could be faulty, or it could be something else in the venting system.

    Diagnostic code p0701


    P0453 means EVAP emission pressure sensor high input. Possible causes:
    - Faulty Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Pressure sensor
    - Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Pressure sensor harness is open or shorted
    - Evaporative Emission System (EVAP) Pressure sensor circuit poor electrical connection.
    Code p0701 means Transmission control system range/performance. Possible causes:
    - Open or short transmission control system circuit
    - Poor transmission control system electrical connection
    - Check powers and grounds to Transmission Control Module (TCM)

    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.

    DTC P0446 - Evaporative Emmission Control System Vent Control Circuit
    Evap vent valve has only one purpose. It closes in order to seal the vent so the EVAP system can pressurize and ensure there are no leaks. Evap vent valve is usually supplied Batt. voltage with key on. The ECM's driver controls the ground, and when grounded, activates the valve (closing it). If the ECM detects a short to ground, and open,or a short to battery voltage on the control circuit, P0446 will set. Code also may refer to ECM detecting that EVAP system is unable to achieve or maintain vacuum during test. A code P0446 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
    • Faulty vent valve
    • Open, short or excessive resistance on Vent valve control circuit
    • Blockage of vent valve
    • Bad PCM
    Possible Solutions
    • Replace Vent valve
    • Repair open, short, or resistance problem in control circuit
    • Repair open, or short, or resistance problem in power circuit
    • Replace PCM

    DTC P0452 - Evaporative emission control system, pressure sensor low imput
    DTC P0453 - Evaporative emission control system, pressure sensor high imput

    The PCM monitors the EVAP control system FTP sensor input signal to the PCM. The test fails when the signal average jumps above a minimum allowable calibrated parameter. If both codes are present, it sounds like your fuel tank pressure sensor has failed.

    The sensor is on top of the tank and you will have to remove the tank. But your symptoms are pointing to more than just the sensor. You may have wiring problems.


    Hope this helps (remember to rate and leave a comment about this free answer).
